What is a Toll-Free number?

toll-freeFreecallFreephone800 number, or 1-800 number is a special telephone number, in that the called party is charged the cost of the calls by the telephone carrier, instead of the calling party. A toll-free number is assigned from a special dialing prefix range (also known as area code) such as 0800 where all calls to those prefixes are free to the caller.

The cost of the call to the called party is usually based on factors such as the amount of usage the number experiences, the cost of the trunk lines to the facility, and possibly a monthly flat rate service charge.

Toll-Free Vanity Number and Branding

A toll-free vanity number, custom toll free number, or mnemonic is a 1-800 telephone number that is easy to remember because it spells something and means something like 1-800-FED-INFO. A vanity number, being a phoneword, is easier to remember than a numerically presented phone number such as 1-866-348-7934. A recent A/B study on three direct response agencies shows a 25% to 69% increase in caller response rates when using a memorable number. Businesses use easy recognizable 1-800 vanity numbers as both a branding and a direct response tool in their advertising (radio, television, print, outdoor, etc.).

Reasons for Use

The called party may use a toll-free phone number because:

  • They charge the calling party in another way, such as for technical support calls.
  • They make a sale following the call to the toll-free number.
  • Sales were enhanced with the inclusion of toll-free support.
  • Improvement of customer satisfaction by providing free after-sales support in certain products/services.
  • They want friends and family to be able to contact them without paying long distance.
  • They are operating a non-profit service intended to be free to the client.

Toll-free numbers differ from collect calls (where the called party also pays for the call) in that the call is always free to toll-free numbers, whereas the called party has to give special permission on a call by call basis to pick up the charge in the case of collect calls.
