What is the allowed calling areas option in my account and extension preferences?
The allowed calling areas option in your account provides extra security by allowing you to limit the countries and destinations that can be called from your account. For example if you only place calls within the US and Canada you can set this preference accordingly. Then whenever calls are placed outside of the US and Canada our systems will block these calls thus preventing unwanted billing and calls.

NOTE: This is only for outgoing calls and this does not affect incoming calls on your account. You may use call treatments for handling incoming calling rules.

You can do this on a global or per extension basis
