Toll-free 855 numbers have been out for several years, since 2010. In the past few years, since the 855 toll free prefix was released, many 855 numbers have been activated and put into use by businesses. You’ll often see them in advertising campaigns. When the new toll free code was released, there was some confusion as to whether these new 855 numbers were toll free.
This is understandable as there are often new area code releases to accommodate the growing population of residential and commercial entities that are opening every day, and are in need of a phone number. The simple is answer is that yes, 855 numbers are really toll free.
What does this mean? There are now six toll free codes, including the brand new prefix of 844, which was released by the FCC and SMS/800 in December 2013.
The six toll free area codes are:
- 800; the first toll-free area code prefix, and the most coveted of all prefixes!
- 855; released in 2010.
- 844; that newest toll-free code, released in December 2013.
