I happen to live 25 minutes from the Georgia (NPA 706) border, so I've got some more data.
The phones at the Georgia welcome center (I-85 southbound):
These are Alltel phones. I got a reorder tone on the tollfree number, and SIT tones followed by "your call cannot be completed as dialed" on the toll number.
A COCOT at a Georgia gas station also gave the reorder on the tollfree, but went through OK on the toll number. Even though I was able to place a call to these phones from my cell, the ringback from the toll number did not ring the phone.
Both numbers seem to work from all types of phones in NPA 864.
So... I'm still not sure from where the tollfree will work. Only South Carolina? Only 864? It's a good hour's drive to get down into NPA 803, so that will have to wait a while. I may be up in NC (704/980) this weekend, so I'll try some more if I am.
That CBCAD from the welcome center phone has really got me curious. Those phones are even in the same exchange as the COCOTS (706-356-xxxx)
