Geo permissions
# support
For the number I bought for the 2/m I need the geo permissions changd in: Is this something you guys can do something in Twilio for me for that specific number or is it better for me to just have the number bought on my own Twilio account?
Hi @Henryk, I'm an AI assistant for Vapi. I'll analyze available sources and get back to you shortly.

### Answer Regarding the management of geo permissions for a phone number, especially those bought or managed through Twilio, the details provided in the information sources don't specifically cover adjusting geo permissions on Twilio or through Vapi's platform directly. Geo permissions typically involve configurations within the Twilio console to control where phone numbers can receive calls from or place calls to, which is beyond the direct scope of Vapi's functionalities as explained in the provided documents. When managing a phone number within Vapi, whether bought directly through Vapi [(1)]() or imported from Twilio [(2)]() , the primary focus is on integrating these numbers for use with Vapi's voice AI capabilities. This includes setting up phone numbers for inbound or outbound calls [(3)]() [(4)]() , handling voice AI assistant assignments [(5)]() , and configuring server URLs for specified actions [(6)]() . Adjusting settings like geo permissions is typically handled within the telephony provider's platform—in this case, Twilio's console, as this is where such configurations are made. If you've acquired your number through Twilio and need to adjust geo permissions, it's advisable to manage these settings directly in your Twilio account, as Vapi's control over such settings is not detailed in the provided documentation. For efficient use of numbers with Vapi, ensuring your Twilio number's geo permissions are appropriately set before importing it to Vapi fo
r your voice AI applications might be the best approach. This ensures that once the number is being used within Vapi, it already meets your operational requirements in terms of where it can make or receive calls from.
Got it. Tagging @User for additional help.
You need to buy your own number from twilio and enable it.
Easy cheers
