Filtering Related Numbers
By Bill Quimby on November 2, 2023
A toll free number just forwards the calls to a local number, and this is the local number you want the calls to be forwarded to. You can point toll free numbers to a cell phone or landline number, to a personal or business line. You can point a toll free number to someone else’s number. You can even point your toll free number to a payphone if you can find one, or someone else’s cell phone. Pointing a toll free number to a local number doesn’t change or affect the local number other than it rings when people dial the toll free number.
It has to be a local number, you can’t point a toll free number to another toll free number. That’s kind of like dividing by zero. You can point multiple toll free numbers to the same local number.
You can use the same local phone company that provides the local number, but you do NOT have to by any means. Cell phone companies for instance don’t provide toll free service but you can point any toll free number to that cell phone. You just have to use a company that does provide toll free service.

“TollFreeNumbers.com is wonderful! We got the vanity number we wanted at an amazing price. Their service was perfect for us since our we are in contract with our phone provider and they do not offer toll free vanity numbers. We were able to get the number we wanted and have it ported to our carrier with no problems what so ever. Plus, the staff is so friendly and responsive. Thanks TollFreeNumbers.com”

“Wow, I couldn't believe how fast, easy, and most importantly affordable it was to get our company's custom toll free number through tollfreenumbers.com - we found the number, paid the low flat fee to purchase it, and almost immediately we had documentation for the transfer of the number to the carrier of our choosing! Zero hassle, and they present NO hurdles to try to force you into other services you don't want to pay for. Other sites want to offer you the number you want, but they want to charge you by the minute for their continued service. I'm so surprised by the simplicity and affordability of this process that I can't believe all businesses aren't picking their own custom number! I might trade my personal number in for a custom number now, why stick with random numbers when its this easy to be picky? :) thanks, tollfreenumbers.com for the enlightening experience!”
“Thank you both for making the buying of a TFN so easy. Also thank you for telling me about UNITEL They are great and have been SO EASY to deal with in this process. I love their console and all the ways I can manage the TFN.”
