Getting started with your new Twilio phone number

Excellent! Now you’re ready to start sending and receiving SMS messages and receiving phone calls. To configure your number to be able to receive calls or SMS messages, you need to enter a URL or an application SID.

Navigate to the numbers page of your dashboard and click on the phone number you want to configure. You will then be able to insert a URL to where your TwiML file is hosted. The TwiML at the URL you specify will be what directs the flow of your call or SMS. For your convenience, we configure all new numbers with a demo Voice and SMS URL. However, for those who would like to get started quickly, we offer Twimlets to help build request URLs for common tasks such as call forwarding, voicemail, IVR and so forth. For additional examples, see our Quickstarts page.
