What are 00800 numbers?

UIFN is an abbreviation for Universal International Freephone Number, often known as Universal Toll Free Number. Except for a few minor differences and limitations, UIFN numbers function similarly to virtual phone number services. There are variances in dialing prefixes depending on the country from where the calls are made.

The following are the requirements for obtaining a UIFN in 2022

  • A UIFN number must be registered in at least two different countries
  • A UIFN number must be used in two or more registered countries within 180 days of being reserved
  • A one-time registration fee is required for UIFN numbers

How do Universal Toll-Free numbers work?

The “00800” prefix is followed by 8 digits in Universal Toll-Free numbers. Each country has its own three-digit international access code that must be dialed in order to connect to a UIFN number. For example, the UIFN format for a UK caller would be (00) +800 XXXX-XXXX.

How much do 00800 numbers cost?

At Message To The Moon, you only pay €45 per month to activate a UIFN number in the first country you choose. For all additional countries in which you want the number to be activated, you pay €8 per month (per country). Are you curious about the rates of our 00800 numbers?

Frequently asked questions about a UIFN/00800 number

General

A Universal International Freephone Number (UIFN) enables a company to be allocated a unique freephone number that is the same throughout the world.

UIFN stands for Universal International Freephone number. It is a phone number that is free of charge for the caller and can be reached anywhere in the world.

To call a UIFN number, the caller must first dial their country’s International Access Code (IAC), commonly known as the International Code or International Country Code. This means that the UIFN format contains the country code,  the 800 prefix, and 8-digit number.

UIFN is formatted as a fixed 11-digit phone number. It starts with a 3-digit code to enable the toll-free service, such as 800, assigned to them by the ITU. This is followed by an 8-digit Global Subscriber Number (GSN). For example +800 00123456, where 800 is the country code and 00123456 is the GSN.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies.

At Message To The Moon you have a UIFN, or 00800 number, for only $45 a month for the first country that is activated. Every additional country only costs $8 a month extra. You pay no setup or activation costs.

An International Toll Free Service is a phone number allows a customer to call a business and have the business pay for the call. An ITFS can only be activated in one country. That’s where is varies with a UIFN. A Universal International Freephone Number can be activated in multiple countries. Businesses can be reached with the same number in different countries.

While it seems appealing to have a single number that works everywhere in the world, the reality is that not every country is involved in the ITU program. Click here to see a list of all the UIFN participating countries.
