One reassuring benefit of having a toll free number is that no carrier owns it, meaning that your toll free is completely portable. It is a number that you own, and you can consider it as an asset to your business. A good toll free number is like a valuable piece of real estate or a good domain name.
A toll free number can serve as your main line, or as an additional line solely used for sales or customer support purposes.
