change the phone number

I couldn't get Zillow to call the number I had for a contact phone, nor my work number, nor my skype number, google number, etc. I finally scored using a friend's cell number. Now I can't edit the stupid phone number to be the one potential renters can call me on. How do I change the contact number?

If I remember correctly, you can edit the listing contact info either under "edit" on the ad's page or by going to "My Zillow" ---> listings and then edit the contact information.

I'm not from Zillow, so am going from memory.   I do know it can be done, so if my instructions are incorrect poke around and you'll find it.

Hi, thanks for the quick response - where do I go to change it to email only?

Zillow's phone number rules are it must be a direct dial US based landline or cell that is answered by a human.  

Things Zillow's phone verification won't use are:
extensions
answering machines
call forwarding
VoIP numbers (e.g. Skype, google number)
I'm sure there are others.  I've read that Puerto Rican numbers don't work even though Zillow covers PR.

If you can't get your own phone number to work, I'd change contact options to E-mail only or buy your friend a lot of pizza and borrow his phone for a few days.
