How can you retrieve an 800 number from a seemingly defunct telephone company?

First you should call the ameritech hotline: 800-337-4194 and type in the toll free number you are interested in.  Have a pen and paper handy to write down the information that the automated system reads back to you.  It will read back a 5 digit code and a telephone number to contact.  The telephone number the system reads to you will be the phone number of the telephone company that services the toll free number you entered.  Call that number and speak to that company.

If there is NO information listed in the ameritech hotline, that means the toll free number will probabley become available soon since it is in a disconnected state.  The bad news is that another entity will probabley aquire that number the instant it becomes available, so you need to be quick to order it.
