Get your own toll free 1-800 number

Ever thought about getting your own toll free 1-800 number? Before we get to the benefits, here's the answer to the question as to what a U.S. or Canada toll free number's got to do with international calls. The number we are talking about is indeed a 1-800 number typically used in the US and Canada. However, it can be set up to redirect the call to any phone number in any country.


  • Business. Your own toll free number is a sign of professionalism. Your clients are more likely to make that toll free call as opposed to a long distance one.
  • Family. Got kids away in college? Got family on the other side of the country? Long distance charges are no longer a barrier, or an excuse.
  • Emergencies. Cell phones don't work all the time. Give the people you'd like to stay in touch with an alternative to costly collect calls.
You can certainly set up your own toll free number through a phone company. In case you don't want to go through the trouble and the monthly costs, not to mention all the fees, give your own toll free number a try with an investment as low as $5.

Save with phone cards bought online

One of the major reasons to buy prepaid phone cards online is the savings they offer:

  • When you buy prepaid phone cards your domestic and international rates are usually much lower than rates offered by major residential phone service providers

  • Phone cards will definitely save you money if you don't have access to your home phone or your mobile phone: on the road, at the hotel, at a pay phone, etc. Much cheaper than collect calls or operator assisted calls.
  • You can better budget your long distance and international expenses by using prepaid phone card.
The best way for you to decide as to whether you will save money on your long distance and international calls by using prepaid cards purchased online is to simply compare the rates. Check out the rates offered by your residential phone service provider and then check the phone card rates.
