How do I get a 1-800 number for my business?

A toll-free 800 telephone number is billed for all arriving calls instead of incurring charges to the originating telephone subscriber. It may also be called a freephone number. For the calling party, a call to a toll-free number from a landline is free of charge.


A 1-800 number is one of the easiest ways for your customers to reach you and to establish a nationwide professional presence. A toll-free number can be designed specifically for the customer or business who is looking to enhance their brand. For example, a window replacement company may select a vanity toll-free number that can be spelled on the telephone keypad as 1-800-WIN-DOWS.
