Get A Free US Phone Number For Verifications

Get A Free US Phone Number For VerificationIn this post I'll explain how I generated a United State based virtual phone number on the internet for sending/receiving free calls and text messages from all over the world without spending a single dollar. There are several other websites and apps (free and paid) that lets users get new numbers from many different countries. You can check them out here.

First method

1. Registered at

2. Fill all your information and click Create

3. Enter your age and zip code of USA or you can Get zip codes and other details click here

4. Choose any number from the list and You were done.

Note: IPKall will be discontinuing its service as of May 1st, 2016. So second method will not work after May 1st, 2016. Here are some other alternatives. 

Second method

The second method is a little difficult from Pinger but do not worry I will explain step by step.

Generating a phone number is more complicated than monitoring phone logs with the best android parental control app. But you can do the first with the following guide.

Get free US local phone number for receiving calls and text or for phone verifications From PC.

So now I will tell you the trick to getting a US number, although this service is only allowed for USA citizen but now we can get it from outside of the US with this trick.

First you need to understand that before getting this number, we must have a Local US phone number for verification purpose, but fret not (if you don't have one), I'll also tell you the solution. Here is the method for getting a local U.S. number.:

1. Sign Up on

Under the New customers please sign up here

2. Fill all the fields with your information and click continue.

3. Now verify your email and enter your own address or Get a free USA address from here: link

Next click on I agree

4. Click on “Go to My CallCentric” now under your username there will be CallCentric # in this format 1777*******

5. Open and fill information :

  • Choose your account type : SIP
  • Choose Area Code for your IPKall Number: (253)
  • SIP username : Now put your CallCentric # here which will be like this 1777*******
  • Host name or IP address :
  • And use previous email address and password which you used on and Click submit.

6. Now check your email address you will receive an email from in which your detail will be given. At the end of the first line there will be your local US phone number but you need to register this number.

7. Download Express talk from here

8. When you are installing express talk, select the default option for all screens. At “SIP Setup” option, select “Yes, I already have a SIP account” and enter all your detail as you fill in Step "5" and log in.

9. After your successful login your US local phone number will be registered automatically. Which you can see on home page under "Balance" tab saying "Your phone is registered"

Getting A US Google Voice Number

1. Go to in new tab or browser sign in with an existing account or you can sign up for a new Google account

2. Click on Get a Voice number then on "I want a new number" and pick any number of your choice by entering Area, zip code, city, word or phrase number after choosing your number, Create a new pin and click continue

3. Put your IPKall phone Number without dashes at "Add a forwarding phone" and click continue Now Google will verify your number you will be provided a two digit code for verification now press "Call me now" button

4. Now you will receive a phone call on IPKall number, receive and press your two digit code. Now you have done, now you can free call on US or Canada to your relatives.

Note: Before asking a question, please follow the step by step method.

I truly like to reading your post. Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a nice information.

James Pereira said...

Hi Irfan,
I tried to register my number using Express Talk, but failed because the system couldn't connect to the server.

I used the server: and the ipkall number and password,

Can you let me know what may have gone wrong?


Irfan Ahmad said...

Hello James Pereira, Can you send me the screenshots on
Or please check again your inputs-entries on Express call Account setup > SIP details.

Great post, however after following your instructions I was getting the following error message when dialing to my new number "your call cannot be completed due to network error 101".

I looked for it, and found the solution. In step 5, in your IPKall settings, the Host name or IP address should be instead of just

In Express Talk, the server name should be as per the instructions.

Again, great post, thank you!

Nice trick Irfan...i also got my free us number as per your described method.

1holymalala said...

Thank you, you gave easy directives, my account is now opened. i would also need that us number rings in my local phone. how do we do that.

Anonymous said...

This is all nice, and thanks a lot,. now I have a lot of US numbers. Which works to call but... looks like that Facebook don't accept them anymore :( I did try to verify my FB account with pinger and Google and FB doesn't sent SMS. It doesn't give me any error but no SMS. When I send SMS to tht numbers from my mobile phone they receive that. Maybe we can't use this for facebook, like we can't verify Craig List account with Google since some time. What do you think?

Of course, my FB account is clean from US IP from the beggining.

Roman said...

I have done all this step succsessfully. Got US no. but varification call comes from gmail voice, I picked up & press 2 digit code. But they say "I dont get it. Please enter code again." I have tried many times. But it does not work. What to do ?

anjali said...

how can i recieve sms using this?

Irfan Ahmad said...

I hate to reply Anonymously, By the way @Anonymous : That's true that many secure websites are filtering the verification process, but I wondered that why your Google voice number Didn't get verification SMS, seems this method didn't work for you.

@Roman : Dear check your verification status it seems that you've successfully verified your number.

@anjali : if you want to receive messages on this number just give your friends your number. And if you are asking for verification purpose, then simply put your number in anywhere on the internet where a phone number is required. You will receive messages.

Indian Railways said...

Google Calls but my phone will not ring & Amazon deliver the message that not comes. Any suggestion or help..Please..?

Irfan Ahmad said...

@mayor : Please retry step-by-step, maybe you've missed something.

@Indian Railways : The only solution is voice-mail or text message. Go in settings at the top right and enable voice mail and text services.

Thank you.

Your instructions are very simple and work. I am not a tech person and don't understand what the instructions mean but they work. I was searching for this solution as my google number was expiring and my actual US phone number had expired and google wanted me to reverify. I followed your instructions and within minutes I was up and working, now problems.

Hi Irfan, Thanks for the instructions! Everything went on smoothly only until the very end. When I select the phone number from google voice after code verification, I get the message "There was an error with your request. Please try again!". No matter how many times I try with different numbers, it's the same result. Any idea on how to get over it?

I am first time user of VoIP or IPKall or SoftPhone technology. I googled and found some good posts to get 1 free US phone number.

1. I register at CallCentric
2. Entered CallCentric details at IPKall (CallCentric # 177***** and
3. Received email from IPKall announcing my US number.
I downloaded Express Talk and entered following details
SIP Number: 177727**** (Call Centric #)
Password: CallCentric and IPKall Password (Same password at both sites)

Express Talk gives error "Server did not respond to register (user sip.17772*****

Please any one help me, what I need to do more to get 1 free US number.

I need Free US number with any combination either its CallCentric/IPKall/ExpressTalk or some one else, please guide me.

Irfan Ahmad said...

Rakib this step is causing the problem : Express Talk gives error "Server did not respond to register (user sip.17772*****

Just remove "in" from the above line in "Express Talk setting" or "sip setting" the correct form is:
