How to Dial Toll Free

Save

Toll free numbers are a great business tool. They allow consumers to call a company or organization at no cost to them, thus encouraging more calls. The company or organization subscribes to the toll free number and pays the cost for the calls that are made to it. As a consumer, toll free numbers give you greater freedom when calling companies or organizations that are located outside of your local calling area, making it more likely that you'll call the number.

  • Obtain the number you wish to call. Toll free numbers can often be found on company or organization websites or on other sales and marketing materials, such as brochures, sales letters or flyers.

  • Make sure the number is toll free. Toll free numbers will start with a specific three-digit code. The codes that are toll free include 800, 866, 877 and 888.

  • Dial a "1" on your phone before entering the toll free number. This is required before you can dial the rest of the number.

  • Dial the three-digit code, which will be 800, 866, 877 or 888.

  • Dial the rest of the toll free number. The remaining portion will be just like a regular telephone number, which consists of seven more numbers.
