Dial In to a Microsoft Teams Meeting


Microsoft Teams


I want to join a Microsoft Teams meeting by dialing in on my personal phone. How do I do that?

Important: As of November 30, 2023, audioconferencing dial-in licensing is no longer available in U-M Microsoft Teams.


The instructions below apply only to external (non-UM) hosted Teams meetings/calls. Dial-in/dial-out features are not available in U-M Microsoft Teams.

  1. You will need to first confirm with the host that they have a dial-in license to allow users to call into their meetings.
  2. Dial 1 906-256-0519‬ (this number is not toll-free) - Other available numbers, depending on location, are listed on Microsoft's website.
  3. You will be prompted for the Conference ID. In a Google Calendar event with a Microsoft Teams meeting, the conference ID will be listed. If you do not know your conference ID, consult the meeting host (the host can find the conference ID by going to More Actions > Meeting Details while in the meeting).
  4. The call will then prompt, "If you’re the meeting organizer, press star." Since you are not the host, you can skip this step and wait for the next prompt.
  5. You will be prompted to record your name and press pound. This will let the host know who you are when you enter.
  6. If a waiting room is turned on for the meeting, you will hear, "Please wait for the leader to admit you to the meeting," followed by music.
  7. Once admitted, you will hear, "You’re now joining the meeting."

Note: Dial-in hosts are not prompted when a new user joins their meeting, so if the lobby is turned on and they do not have other hosts, they cannot admit users waiting in the lobby.
