3 Things You Should Know About 877 Numbers
1. They’re toll free numbers.
877 toll free numbers work just like other toll free numbers with different prefixes (800, 888, 866, 855, 844, & 833). They are regulated by the FCC and provisioned by the national toll free number directory Somos, in the same way as other toll free numbers. They provide you with number portability allowing you to transfer your number from one phone company to another. An 877 area code gives your business a nationwide presence. And a memorable vanity 877 number can boost your marketing and help customers remember to call your business (like 877-FLOWERS).
2. They give your business credibility and a nationwide presence.
Although not as popular as toll free 800 numbers, 877 numbers are an excellent alternative to an 800 toll free number prefix. An 877 number provides your company with the same credibility and national presence as other toll free numbers. Also, 877 toll free numbers are portable meaning you own your business number and can transfer it from toll free service provider to toll free service provider.
