Yes, absolutely. We recommend 7-10 digits as optimal but it depends on your
market and advertising medium. For example, if you advertise on a billboard then
it's most important that your audience remembers the number. Chances are that
they will wait until they get to the office or get home before they actually
call. In that instance it's best to make it memorable, even if it goes over by a
few digits. When dialing from a land line you can easily dial 10 digits without
any interference. If a longer number is chosen, make sure that it won't
interfere with you're companies menu options.

A toll free number is a telephone number that can be called at no cost to the
caller, because the recipient pays for the cost of the call. Also referred to as

A vanity number is an alphanumeric telephone number which often incorporates
words, abbreviations or acronyms in place of numbers. For example, the letters
in 1-800-Flowers correspond to the numbers 800-356-9377 on your phone's dial
While in use for over 30 years, vanity numbers have recently become recognized
as one of the most powerful business, branding and marketing tools. Most notably
their ability to generate 30-60% higher response rates to direct response
advertising has dramatically driven up demand. This is attributed to the ease of
memorability compared to regular phone numbers especially when consumers only
have a few seconds to take them in.
The latest toll free number search tools allow you to quickly and easily find
vanity numbers by keyword or phrase for specialized purposes or to unify
However, there are also numeric vanity numbers which are easy to remember
numbers often incorporating strings of the same digits. For example
A toll free number just forwards to or points to a regular local number. No
special equipment or additional line or installation is required.
When a call is placed to a toll free number, the Local Exchange Company (LEC)
queries the SMS/800 Database to determine the inter-exchange carrier (long
distance company) responsible for carrying the call. The inter-exchange carrier
then picks up the call, applies the appropriate features or routing, creates a
call record for billing, and routes the call to the terminating number, trunk ID
or circuit ID to which the toll free number is programmed to ring.
For example, when you reserve a toll free number with Custom Toll Free, we ask
you for your 'ring-to' number, and upon successful reservation your new toll
free number is routed to your designated local number. *Hint, a cell phone works
