Add a Toll Free Number

Need a toll free number? This is where you can add one to your account. Calls out will still go out over your current number, but incoming calls will be free to whoever is calling it from anywhere in the US and Canada. Incoming calls will be billed to your account at a rate of $0.04 per minute.
