In India, phone calls to toll-free numbers in the United States and Canada are NOT free.

However, when you dial a Toll-Free number, within Canada or the USA, the recipient is the one who pays for the call while it is free to you.

Specifically, phone calls to the US 800, 866, 877 and 888 numbers from India are considered long distance.

In what order dial prefixes, numbers and codes

But the above is not all. We will specify the order, or sequence, of the digits that you must dial in order to make your international call successfully.

Here is the order in which you should dial:

  1. International exit code for India, which is 00. These are the first 2 numbers that you must dial.
  2. The country code of the United States, which is 1. Each country has its number. For example, India has 91.
  3. The toll-free number you need, already converted according to the table above.
  4. The rest of the number, that is, the group of the 7 remaining numbers.

The components of your number will be as follows:

  • 00 + 1 + 800 + 7654321 (without the addition signs, of course).

The following is the same number but in a synthesized way:

  • 008007654321

The total number of digits that you will be dialing is 13.

The majority of US companies that use this free calling system pay for each call made within the US territory, 

in order to give their customers a better information service.

Therefore, the customer pays nothing to call these companies by dialing any of the 800 series prefixes.

However, most companies prefer not to pay for calls initiated from India, or from any other country. 

This is why when you dial US toll-free numbers from your country, you are warned that your dialing is invalid.

Consequently, to facilitate the telephone connection of people abroad with companies that use toll-free numbers in the United States, international prefixes have been created.

But, of course, calls made by applying such prefixes cost the initiator of the call. 

The rate depends on the phone and application she uses, as well as the country where she is.
