Calls to a toll free number are paid for by the receiver of the call, making them free for you, the caller. However, when dialing such a number from another country, you (the caller) will be charged international rates. So the call is no longer free when dialed from abroad.
Also question is, is an 800 number free?
Toll-free numbers are numbers that begin with one of the following three-digit codes: 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 or 844. Although 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 and 844 are all toll-free codes, they are not interchangeable. Calls to each toll-free number are routed to a particular local telephone number.
