When I loo in my Verizon phonebook, it says that 880, 881, and 882 are "paid 800" sevices. I never knew exactly what that meant, and I still don't. Maybe it's for when a toll-free number cannot be reached from your calling area? I called Verizon and, of course, they didn't have the slightest idea what I wa taling about. You know 855, 844, 833, and 822 are all rerved for future toll-free use. 855 was assigned, but NANPA took it back. People are barely scanning 877 and 866 nowadays...whos gonna be scanning out 10 different toll-free area codes???

Well, actually, no one could do it. There's no law that says that phreaks have to scan the new NPA's.

What, is there some kind of toll-free crisis going on here? Like Ipv6, everyone is clammering to get more toll-free NPA's out there.

Up in the "Great White North". (Canada, you cannuck, eh?) They've set aside 88x numbers for access to toll free numbers that are otherwise unaccessible from up there, since they're American toll free numbers. Now, perhaps I'm wrong, but I thought it worked like this...

880= Canada's 800 toll-free prefix

881= their access to 888 prefix numbers

882= 877

Don't know if they've set asie anything for 866 up there. I'm pretty certain I'm right on this. But, if anyone knows otherwise on this, then disregard this.

well, like I said before, they are listed in the verizon phone book as "paid toll free" (sounds a little weird, huh?) but I called a few different offices in verizon and no one knew what the hell I was talking about, so it very well could be for use outside the US.

Captain B...no.

I can direct dial 888 and 877 number, just like you, and I'm in Canada.
