Hi Tanya,


You should not include your country code i.e +27. Select your country from the dropdown menu that comes right before the phone number field. 


Also, use trunk prefix ie. 0 before your number. For instance, if the number 86 000 0000, it should be 0860000000. If it is 1234567, it should become 0111234567 (with area prefix).
