What is a vanity number?

A vanity number is a local or toll-free phone number that spells out a memorable word or phrase. They can be used to create an 800 number for a recognizable brand name like 1-800-FLOWERS.

Other companies want an easy-to-remember toll-free number for use in advertising (like 1-800-GoFedEx).

Custom phone numbers are available, with many toll-free prefixes, including 800, 844, 855, 866, 877 and 888.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a local vanity phone number?

Not at this time. We do not offer vanity numbers, but you can select a number for your local area code from our inventory. Offering a familiar local number along with a vanity toll-free number is a great way to maximize your reach.

Can I send and receive text messages with my vanity number?

In the US, yes! Text messaging is available for US-based toll free vanity numbers. We currently do not support text messaging for vanity toll-free numbers in Canada. (But we're working on it!) However, we do offer text messaging to local phone numbers in Canada.

How can I pick my own phone number?

It's easy. Think of a vanity number you'd like and run it through our number search tool. We'll check every available toll-free prefix to see if it's available for you! Here are some tips for picking a vanity number:

1. Choose a word or phrase that incorporates the name or benefit of your company.
2. Use an 833 prefix—you’ll find more available options than 800 area codes.
3. Pick an easy-to-spell number and avoid unique spellings.
4. Avoid hybrid numbers (a combination of numbers and letters).

Can I port my vanity number?

Yes, number porting your vanity number to Grasshopper is quick and easy. We'll provide you with a transfer form as soon as you sign up. There is no porting fee, and once we confirm the transfer went through, you are good to go.
