All of Grasshopper pricing plans come with unlimited calling so you never have to worry about going over or paying for more than what you budgeted for.


Multiple numbers for your business

If your business requires multiple numbers or flexibility in call routing, Grasshopper gives you the ability to have more than one toll-free, local, or vanity number. You can even have one of each! FreedomVoice only allows for one business phone number in all of its plans and requires you to pay an extra monthly fee to add additional toll-free or local numbers. If you want a vanity number, FreedomVoice will charge you a one-time fee of $30.
