Frequently Asked Questions
Toll free phone numbers start with a specific three-digit code and don’t charge callers when they dial—whoever owns the toll-free phone number pays instead. Numbers with the 800 prefix are considered premium toll-free numbers and are typically less available than other prefixes.
Yes! We’ll provide you with a number transfer form and will port your existing number once we confirm the transfer went through.
You sure can! Once you have signed up for your Grasshopper account, you can log in and add more numbers. Often, businesses will have both a toll free number and a local number for the convenience of their customers.
As toll-free number inventories dwindle across North America, new exchanges need to be introduced to increase availability. The 833 exchange was made available in 2017, and Grasshopper has offered it since that time. We have a large inventory available to choose from!
Absolutely. We’ll always show your toll free number as the caller ID when you make a call from the Grasshopper desktop and mobile apps.
When you sign up for a Grasshopper account with a toll-free number – standard or vanity – you can start using your number immediately. There is no delay!
Toll-free numbers work a little differently for mobile phones than they do for legacy landlines. Calling a toll-free number from your cell phone is only free if your cellular plan is an unlimited plan. If you have a per minute plan, calling toll-free numbers will still use those minutes.
Nope! At this time, there is no additional charge to get a toll-free number.
Charges apply if you call an toll-free number internationally, but you are not charged if you receive an international call. Toll-free numbers are free of charge when calling long distance within the United States and Canada.
Regulatory compliance requires toll-free numbers to be verified to avoid SMS service disruptions or limitations. Verification is intended to reduce unwanted spam and lessens the likelihood of your messages being filtered as spam. It is recommended that all new customers have their toll-free numbers verified, even when porting existing toll-free numbers from another carrier. The verification process can be completed during setup and is entirely free.
You will need to submit a form with information about your intended use of SMS, with examples of the messaging you plan to send. Your carrier will also need proof of consent. Our Customer Care team will notify you when the carrier has completed the verification process. You can find detailed instructions here.
If your toll-free number cannot be verified, you will be able to send SMS from that number until you have reached the messaging threshold. Once you have reached that limit, you will not be able to continue sending SMS. If for any reason your number cannot be verified – or if you simply prefer not to go through the verification process – our Customer Care team can help you trade your toll-free number for a local number.
