How Does The SMS/800 Database Work?

The SMS/800 Data Center houses the main database of available toll free 800, 888, 877 and 866 phone numbers for the United States and Canada. The SMS/800 maintains and updates the database and keeps records of the owners of each number. Available numbers on the database are assigned to subscribers on a first-come, first-served, basis. SS/800 keeps records on the status of all 800 numbers, service providers, and call routing options. When an 800 number is disconnected, it goes into what is referred to as the aging process. After several months, it becomes available on the SMS/800 database.

Retire Any Unused 1-800 Numbers!

Last year, there was a call for the owners of unused toll free numbers to retire their dormant 1-800 numbers back to the main database for use by others. Perhaps it is time for another call to action. With an estimated 8,000 numbers registered each day, and more than two-thirds of the supply already taken, there is a real concern about the limited stock of available numbers and the impact on small businesses. The limited availability of new toll free numbers, coupled with the limited turnover of used numbers, have created an intense demand for the remaining toll free numbers. Retire those unused numbers!
