1-800 Number to Pay for Parking

As of this week, some motorists will have an easier time parking with the help of a 1-800 telephone number!

Drivers in Washington D.C. can now use their mobile phones to pay for parking at all of the District’s approximately 17,000 on-street metered spaces.  Motorists use an app or a toll-free phone call to pay to park. There is a small fee for each transaction, which covers the credit card processing and other program costs. Parking enforcement officers will get the information on the payments in real time on their handheld devices. Amazing how we use toll free numbers these days, isn’t it?


New Domains in 2012; New World of Marketing

With the announcement that new domain names will be allowed next January–we no longer have to stick with .com or .org etc–it reminds us how this will open up a whole new world of advertising and marketing options, in a similar way that new toll free telephone area codes open up telecommunications marketing possibilities. The new domains will allow for example, IBM to end their site name with .IBM. (www. technology.ibm for example….) We agree that giving more options to businesses and to the consumer will help all types of companies.

Swift Release Of 855 Numbers Necessary

The popularity of 1-800 numbers is surpassing that of local phone numbers at rates exceeding industry expectations.
Toll free service has increased at such a fast pace that the supply of available 1-800 numbers is at an all-time low. According to the Federal Communications Commission 1-800, 888, 877 and 866 numbers are increasingly popular for businesses and for personal use. And that is why we continue to lobby for the swift release of the new pool of toll free numbers–the 855 area code numbers.

Applicants call a toll free phone number 1-800-3000-3003. This is another way that toll free service is helping both big corporations and people looking for work.
