Full Answer

Toll-free numbers allow callers to make calls to businesses without being charged for the call. The charge is paid for by the called party (the business). As of 2014, there are six toll-free area codes in the United States, but they are not interchangeable with each other. For instance, 1-800-123-4567 is not the same number as 1-888-123-4567. Toll-free numbers are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. The Federal Communications Commission regulates the use of toll-free numbers.
