Toll Free Number FAQs
Does my business need a toll free number?
If your business sells products or services online or may require customers to phone in for sales or service, a toll free number gives you instant credibility and a national presence.
Is there a difference between the 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844 and 833 prefixes?
No. 1-800, 1-888, 1-877, 1-866, 1-855, 1-844 and 1-833 all work the same. The 1-800 prefix is the original and "true" 800 number, but they all offer you the same benefits.
How does a toll free number work?
Toll free numbers allow callers to reach businesses and/or individuals without being charged for the call. This provides callers with a "free" and convenient way to contact businesses. For more information on toll free numbers, visit fcc.gov.
What if I cancel? Do I lose my toll free number?
No. Before you cancel your service with NumberBarn, simply port away your number to your preferred provider. Should you wish to save the number with no active service, simply change your NumberBarn plan to parking and you can keep it indefinitely.
Can I place outbound calls with my toll free number?
Yes! Within the account control panel, use our dialer to place outbound calls using your NumberBarn number as your outgoing caller ID.
