Toll Free 800 Phone Service
A toll free number (tfn also referred to as an "800 number") is setup so that the called party, rather than the caller, pays for calls. When you are traveling, this is a cost effective alternative to calling cards, pay phones or calling collect. Any USA or Canadian phone number beginning with 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 or 844 is a toll free number that we can forward to practically any phone number in the world. If the caller is using a cell phone, the call gets charged against caller's cell phone plan minutes even if it is to a toll free number.
A personal toll free number allows children in college, family or friends to call you from a metered land line phone service at no cost to themselves. You pay a low rate for their calls to you.
Businesses often already have their own toll free number(s). Any existing toll free number can be moved to a low cost service with one example of such plans listed below. New or additional toll free numbers can be added at little or no cost.
Calls to a toll free number can be forwarded to different terminating numbers by the toll free service based on characteristics like the location of the calling number, the time of day, the day of the week, and the status of the receiving office. The options available vary from one toll free service to the next.
If your toll free charges plus long distance and other phone charges are about $500 per month or more, a dedicated T-1 line or a PRI may be your best option. For more details and a complimentary consultation, go to the
