What are Toll Free Telephone Numbers? A toll free telephone number is a special phone number that is toll free for the caller and instead the phone company charges the called party for the cost of the phone call. A toll free telephone number does not use a local area code. It has an 800 number prefix such as 800, 888, 877, 866, or 855, giving the number a nationwide appeal. Toll free numbers remain popular among businesses large and small, not because callers can call them toll free, but because a toll free 1-800 number is portable. This means a business owns its phone number and can port it to another telephone carrier at any time. In the section below you can learn how to get 800 number service for your small business.
