turboDial includes the capability to purchase and configure Inbound phone numbers for your account ($1.00/month each).
Only a turboDial account owner has access to this feature in turboDial.
This video below explains the steps.
Note, if you have Hosted Voice or Enhanced Inbound features in your account you will not configure those features on the number you are acquiring here. After you have acquired the number here you can proceed to modify the configuration of the number to setup those features.

Inbound calls are forwarded to the phone number the account owner configures when the number is acquired. If you would also like a “Screen Pop” or call recording for each inbound call then you need to upgrade to the Enhanced Inbound feature.
The Inbound numbers acquired by the account owner will automatically appear as choices in the Caller ID selector for every User in your turboDial account.
The account owner must acquire an Inbound number before any user in the account can send or receive an SMS text message in turboDial.
Backup Email for Forwarding SMS Messages
When the account owner acquires an Inbound Number, they must enter an email address as shown here:
That address is used when an inbound SMS message cannot be correlated to an existing SMS conversation. In other words, an SMS is received from someone who did not first receive an SMS from you or your other turboDial users. When that happens turboDial uses the rules explained here to decide where to forward the SMS.
If you have the Enhanced Inbound add-on in your turboDial account then this field is renamed to “Owner’s Infusionsoft Email ID”.
Copy the Backup Email on All Inbound SMSs
You can specify that the email address provided in the “Backup Email…” field should always receive an emailed copy of every inbound SMS text message, in addition to the copy turboDial sends to another User who is the intended recipient of the inbound SMS.
By checking the box indicated here the backup email address will be copied on all inbound SMSs.
