Before going with a specific service, find out if they provide a PBX phone system support. You would want to know the exact number of calls that you receive at a given time. Make sure you get other features like call forwarding, fax-to-email, fax, auto attendant and voice mail. You have to know that a toll free number receives incoming calls just like a conventional ring to number can support.

A toll free number should allow potential customers a reasonable and simple spelling that isn’t hard to memorize. Overly elaborate and intricate words will only confuse consumers and decrease your callers. Don’t forget to include your toll free number when printing business cards, fliers and posting online ads.
