If you’re like me and you run your own telephone answering system, you probably find that when you travel you end up calling in with a calling card a lot to check your messages.
There’s a service charge added to every calling card call you make, and they can add up if you’re calling in a lot.
It turns out that if you get yourself a toll-free number, you don’t pay the surcharge, and the long distance rates are the same. And there’s no cost (at least from Island Tel) to install the toll-free number, and no monthly charge for it either.
I’m on hold right now signing up for mine.
