TollfreeNumber.ORG says 844 area code will not be released in 2012
Posted by Tollfreenumber.ORG at November 15th, 2012
We have confirmed from multiple sources that the 844 area code will not be released in 2012, but it is a possibility in late 2013-2014. The 844 area code release date will be set by the FCC, and a directive will be issued to the SMS800, which is where TollfreeNumber.ORG will get its information. This recent news only further highlights the need to obtain a toll free number as soon as possible, in order to ensure that you get the ideal number for you or your business.
Choosing an 800 number will often provide you with the most benefits, in fact, as they tend to be more recognizable and can even potentially lend a credibility to your business. The issue with 800 numbers is that they are in short supply, with just 600K out of 10 million currently available for purchase.
This number is at an all-time low, and is evidence of the fact that 800 numbers are the more popular option (and for good reason). The 800 number has been around for far longer than the other area codes, and owners of an 800 number will typically see an increase in sales due to misdials.
This means that all of the effective, business-boosting 800 numbers are either already taken or will be very soon. Therefore, it’s highly recommended that anyone who wishes to own their ideal 800 number makes their purchase through the website TollfreeNumber.ORG as soon as possible.
Beware of toll free service providers who are selling 844 numbers. If you have done any research into 844 numbers, then you will already undoubtedly have noticed that a myriad of service providers online are offering the option to purchase 844 numbers. However, given that they are not currently available, and will not be for some time, it’s important to be weary of these companies.
TollfreeNumber.ORG is a reputable, established toll free number provider that offers a wide range of 800 numbers that may be ideally suited for your business, at an affordable rate. They are customer service-centric and strive to provide each of their customers with the assistance that they need to obtain the perfect toll free number.
If you should happen to stumble across a website that boasts that it is selling 844 numbers to the public now, or that they will be this year, then you can rest assured that they may not necessarily be on the up-and-up.
You are urged to keep checking at the tollfreenumber.org website to find out the current status on the release of the 844 area codes, as well as to purchase an ideal toll free number that may be currently be available.
Keep in mind that unused 800 numbers are being recycled and returned back to the spare number pool on a continuous basis. Thus, it’s recommended that you check the tollfreenumber.org site often to see if the 800 that you would have been waiting for may now be for sale.
