    I am considering moving to a new market. What I am wondering is do any of you have a 1-800 number so people can call toll free? If you do what does it cost you?

    you pay for the incoming calls, per minute, and the 800 number is typically a forwarding alias into your standard phone line. call your local telco's commercial services and they can give you the costs over the phone.

    when you say "moving to a new market", do you mean "expanding our service coverage"?

    Yes, I am planning on working in another area next spring. I am just considering all of the advertising and pros and cons of working in another area.

    What would be the pros? To travel to a whole different area code?

    Well I guess I understand because if I had a rig like you all I would want to do is drive!

    I used one of the Big name long distance company until a few years back. I found one of those no name long distance company's and thought I'd give it a try. I now pay .07 a minute and that includes my toll free number. Since having this service my long distance bill has never been over $7.00 a month.

    works for me.................



    can give you the info on this company if you want to look into it.
