This is baffling to us. We had another change to our RingCentral conference call in number. Last fall it changed from the 7171 number to (605) 562-3180. That''s fine, we remind everyone at the company and all is well and good. Then this January they change the number AGAIN to (267) 930-4000 ! Why was this done? Worse, many international numbers have been removed! Particularly South Korea, who we do lots of business with.
What is going on??

Very frustrating and we may have to find another conferencing solution which stinks because that means paying extra.

Hello. We had to remove local access number for South Korea for the time being to reinforce our security measure. It's still unknown when we can bring it back but we will.  We apologize for the inconvenience. 

The good news is that we are going to introduce local access number for Taiwan very soon.

thank you.
