There are two types of numbers available.
- Toll free numbers are virtual numbers allowing callers to contact a business for free. With over 100 countries worldwide providing toll free service, businesses provide one number for the entire country.
- Local phone numbers are the same thing as DID/DDI or city-specific numbers. These numbers are tied to a particular geographic location and have call forwarding capabilities, too.
If the number you need is available and offered by the corresponding country or city, purchasing a number is very simple. In just three easy steps, you can have a number from CallForwarding.com and start expanding your global reach.

A VoIP call will have multiple “legs.” For example, when you forward a toll free number to another number, there will be two legs. The first leg is from the caller’s carrier to the toll free number. The second leg is from the toll free number to the destination number. Depending on the type of call and the numbers involved, there could be charges for each leg or just one of the legs. Note: you are not being charged twice for the same call.
