Portability: Keeping Your Existing Toll Free Number when you Change Service Provider
A Responsible Organization (Resp Org) is any person, company, or organization that manages Toll Free numbers in the SMS/800 toll free data base. The called party, instead of the calling party, pays for the charge for a call using a Toll Free number. The called party is also known as the Toll Free subscriber. Toll Free number portability means that Toll Free subscribers can change Resp Orgs without having to obtain a new Toll Free number.
If a new Toll Free number is needed, you may order a vanity number. A vanity number is a Toll Free number that also spells a person or company name. For example, 888-639-2277 spells 888-New Cars.
