What is an 800 number?

An 800 number is a toll-free phone number, which means the cost of a call is paid for by the phone number’s owner, not the caller. There are many other toll-free numbers available, but the 800 prefix is the most well known.

Many businesses use 800 numbers for their call centers and customer service teams. 800 numbers are among the most professional phone numbers you can have.

As a result, they’re often in high demand and short supply.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an additional charge to get an 800 number?

Nope! Grasshopper offers 800 numbers for business at the same price as any other toll-free or local number in our inventory.

How long does it take to get an 800 number?

It takes no time at all! When you sign up for a Grasshopper account with a toll-free 800 number, you can start using your number immediately.
However, text messaging may take up to 15 minutes to be enabled. If you have any issues, please contact customer support.

Is it free to call an 800 number from a mobile phone?

Toll-free numbers work a little differently for mobile phones than they do for legacy landlines. Dialing an 800 number from your cell phone is only free if your cellular plan is an unlimited plan. If you have a per-minute plan, calling 800 numbers will still use those minutes.

Can I use my 800 number when making outbound calls?

You bet! We’ll always show your 800 number as the caller ID to customers when you make a call from the Grasshopper desktop and mobile apps.

Can I have a local number as well as an 800 number with Grasshopper?

Of course! After you’ve signed up for Grasshopper, you can easily add more numbers. Often, businesses will have both a toll-free number and a local number for their customers’ convenience.

Is there a difference between the 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, and 833 prefixes?

No. Toll free numbers come in seven formats, 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 833, and 844 and they all work the same. However, the 800 prefix is the only "true" 800 number. We often times get the questions, "Is 866 a toll free number prefix?" or "Are 877 numbers really toll free?". Regardless of which prefix you choose, they all work the same and offer you the same benefits.
