What is a toll-free number?

A toll-free phone number is a particular area code that doesn't charge the caller.

Toll-free number prefixes include 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, and 833.

The "toll-free" segment is for consumers, especially those with landlines. Companies finance the cost of inbound calls by using their phone service provider.

Consumers place more trust in a small business that uses a toll-free number than a local number.

It was historically tricky for landline users to call outside of their local area without incurring extra charges, something savvy direct response advertisers quickly exploited with three-digit codes.

A vanity phone number is an impressive, toll-free business number that spells out a word or phrase. Vanity toll-free numbers are influential enough to shape your brand as 1-844-VOXTELL as we did.
