How to add your phone number to your Instagram account

Seeing Instagram profiles that include the option to call or text them and wondering how that's possible? Here's how to add your OpenPhone number to Instagram so that customers can call or text your business phone number (instead of your personal number).

Adding your phone number to Instagram

1. Go to your Instagram profile and tap Edit Profile

2. You'll need to have a Professional or Business Instagram account to be able to add your phone number to Instagram. To switch, you can scroll down and tap "Switch to Professional Account".

If you already have a Professional or Business Instagram account, tap "Contact Options" under "Public Business Information" (This will appear as "Profile Information" if you have a Professional Instagram account).

3. Add your OpenPhone number as the phone number and specify whether you want anyone on Instagram to be able to either call or text you under "How would like you to be reached?"
