How does a toll-free number work?
Toll-free numbers start with a toll-free prefix—800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, or 833—and are assigned by an entity called a “Responsible Organization” (RespOrg). The FCC sets all rules related to getting and using toll-free numbers. They require toll-free numbers to be portable, so a subscriber can move their number to a new RespOrg if they switch providers.
Toll-free numbers are free of charge for the caller, even when calling long distance within the same country. Charges apply if you call a toll-free number internationally. You are not charged when receiving an international call.
