Toll free telephone numbers or a Toll free telephone number is a telephone number with an 0800 prefix that is billed for all incoming calls, instead of incurring charges to the originating telephone subscriber. The charge for using a toll free phone number is paid for by the called party instead of the calling party. Thus for the calling party, a call to an 0800 number from a landline or mobile is free of charge.
