In-Bound Toll-Free (800) Service

800 number

Service Description

In-Bound Toll-Free, or 800, service allows toll charges for long distance calls to be charged to the called number instead of the caller. A local number is identified as the terminating number, and a toll-free service is assigned to it. The function of the terminating number is not affected, but calls to the toll-free service will ring on that extension.

UCSB departments may arrange through Communications Services for in-bound toll-free service to be recharged directly to their university accounts. Depending on the vendor, service can be configured to allow calls from all of the U.S. and Canada, or to restrict calls to limited geographic areas and specific times of day. Communications Services will assist you in determining which vendor and options best fit your needs.

Getting In-Bound Toll-Free Service

To order service, an individual with signature authority on the account to be charged should send an email to workorder@commserv.ucsb.edu. The email should include:

  • The account number to be charged.
  • The campus number to which the the toll-free number will be assigned.
  • Any special requirements for the number.

For additional information, call Customer Service at extension 8700.
