You've picked out your perfect vanity toll free number. It's available and now you're ready to place your order. But you have one final question. How long will you have to wait before the vanity number is available for you to use?
Relax! The hard part is over! In most cases, your new toll free number will be active and ready for use within two hours after placing the order. So it's a good idea to be ready to field those incoming calls right away.
What can sometimes take longer and require more effort is finding a good vanity number that is right for your business and that is also available. There are 32 million toll free numbers in the United States, counting all of the toll free area codes active at this time (800, 888, 877, 866, and 855) and all the possible number combinations for each area code. Of those, about twenty-five percent, or eight million numbers, are available at any given time. That's a lot of numbers! But not all toll free numbers will work to generate a phone word that's right for your business.
That's why it's important that Custom Toll Free offers so many great tools for finding the right custom toll free number. You can use the Numspell tool to generate possible words from any number combination, or find the current holders of a toll free number using the Reverse Lookup Tool. You can also consider the possibility of sharing the number. You can also look up availability using each of the different toll free area codes, so you're not limited just to 800 numbers.
Once you have your toll free number and are ready to activate it, though, the activation is usually very quick – in some cases a matter of seconds, and usually within two hours.
