How does a toll-free number work?

Commonly used in the United States and Canada, toll-free phone numbers use certain prefixes that are associated with a free calling line. Rather than regional or city-specific area codes, the toll-free numbers include toll-free codes, such as 800, 877, 888, 886, and others. The toll-free numbers are assigned by a service provider called the “Responsible Organization” (RespOrg).

The FCC has established rules and regulations about toll-free numbers. One FCC requirement is that toll-free phone numbers must be portable. This rule means that a toll-free number subscriber can move their number to a new service provider (RespOrg).

Toll-free numbers are free of charge for customers when they are making the call within a country like the United States. Callers can use landlines, cell phones, or a VoiP phone system when making toll-free calls. There are charges for the caller if they call a toll-free number from outside of the country.

The advantages of toll-free numbers

A toll-free business number or vanity phone number provides a key competitive advantage.

    National Presence

    A toll-free number enables businesses to convey their legitimacy and removes the perception of being only a small or local business. Additionally, having a toll-free number for your small business is an invitation for your audience to easily connect with your company to make purchases via phone calls or get customer or tech support for free.

    Distinct Communications Channels

    As a small business, you might use your cell phone number as your business number. By getting a free business number, you can separate your personal phone number from your company phone number, and help you keep personal and business calls separate. Having these distinct communication channels can help create a more professional image for your brand.

    Access to Sophisticated Analytics

    Free numbers can help your business acquire marketing research since it’s simple to add extensions to a toll-free number. By designating a specific extension for a Facebook ad, a print ad, etc., companies can easily assess the profitability and performance of specific marketing strategies, mediums, or campaigns.

    Value-Added Feature

Toll-free numbers operate differently when a cell phone or mobile device is used instead of a landline. Calling a toll-free number from a cell phone is only free if you have an unlimited cellular plan. If you have a per-minute cellular plan, then calling toll-free numbers will use the minutes available in your plan. Should you go over those minutes while calling a toll-free number, you will be charged for those additional minutes.

The per minute rate is $0.019/minute for all incoming calls using a toll-free number.
