Why Choose a Tool Free Number

Simply put, a toll-free number allows your customers or loved ones to reach you from anywhere in the U.S., and in some cases Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands*, at no cost to the caller. While 800 numbers have been around for a long time, there are now new toll-free numbers, including 888, 877, 866 and 855 area codes, and they all function the same way. In recent years toll-free numbers have become very affordable and are now a great option for businesses and families of all sizes.

For families, toll-free numbers are a very cost-effective way to keep in touch and ensure anyone can make a call free of toll charges. Do you have a student away from home or perhaps a job that requires a lot of travel? Then an 800 number is for you. A 1-800 number service is also great for children to use in case of an emergency and is a much more affordable option than collect calls.

If you own a business, you are no doubt looking for ways to attract more customers. Toll-free numbers can help you do so in several ways. A toll-free number can be a great tool for small businesses. A toll-free number projects your business as relevant, professional and potentially larger than you may actually be. Since toll-free numbers may be dialed by any potential customer in the U.S., and in some cases Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands*, you gain an advantage over your competitors by attracting a national audience. Building confidence with your potential customers is key in actually making them paying customers, and a toll-free number is an easy first step in that direction.

*Not all virtual phone service providers include Canada, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands in their domestic rate plans.

Toll Free Number Background Information

Toll-free numbers are numbers that begin with one of the following three-digit codes: 800, 888, 877, 866 or the new 855 area code. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) provides the following information about toll-free numbers:

Background
Toll-free numbers allow callers to reach businesses and/or individuals without being charged for the call. The charge for using a toll-free number is paid by the called party (the toll-free subscriber) instead of the calling party.

Toll-free directory assistance for some toll-free numbers can be obtained by calling 1-800-555-1212. The service is free. Not all toll-free numbers are listed – only the numbers for subscribers that choose to list them.

The FCC regulates how toll-free numbers can be used or obtained. Consumers may file complaints with the FCC if they have a problem with a company providing toll-free numbers or service which cannot be resolved directly with the company. Visit http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/tollfree.html for information about how to file a complaint.

How Are Toll-Free Numbers Assigned?
Toll-free numbers are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis by entities referred to as Responsible Organizations or RespOrgs, or other toll-free service providers. These entities, which may or may not be telephone companies, have access to the SMS/800 database, which contains information regarding the status of all toll-free numbers. RespOrgs are certified by the SMS/800 database administrator, which manages toll-free service.

What Is a Vanity Number and How Can I Get One?
A vanity number is a toll-free telephone number that also spells a person’s or company’s name or spells a word or acronym that is chosen by the subscriber, such as 1-800-FLOWERS or 1-888-NEW-CARS. To find out whether a specific toll-free number is available, contact any RespOrg or toll-free service provider.
