The error message Call blocked. Contact Zendesk Customer Support if you need to call this number shows up when our provider Twilio identifies a number as high risk of fraud or due to regulatory reasons. Contact Zendesk Customer Support for further help.
Cannot connect to a number
Confirm the number you are trying to call is formatted correctly. The international standard is E.164 [+] [country code] [subscriber number including area code] and can have a maximum of fifteen digits.
If the number is valid and you are still having issues reaching it, contact Zendesk Customer Support to investigate further.
