Enhanced Services - Payphone Blocking

The point of a toll free number is to entice customers new and old to reach out. What you don’t want, however, is to absorb extra costs — like calls from payphones. While less common these days, payphone call costs can start to weigh you down quickly.

Payphone users don’t need to insert coins when calling out to your toll free line. So who picks up that cost? Under Federal Communications Commission rules, you do. It may only take a few extended calls from payphone users to leave with a bill far above expectations.

That’s where Payphone Blocking from Kall8 comes in. With this feature, you can block your toll free numbers from receiving calls from a payphone. This saves you from needing to pick up the bill for these inquiries without damaging the customer experience for landline or mobile callers.

Payphone Regulations Impact Your Number

The Federal Communications Commission requires that payphone owners be reimbursed for calls made to toll free numbers from their phones. A 60¢ charge will be applied to any call made from a payphone to your toll free number.

While a few spare payphone calls won’t break the bank, companies that deal with a high volume of calls could see the impact fast. If you don’t need these calls, your Kall8 number can block them from coming through.
