Are there Toll Free numbers for use inside China? Of course there are. With all of the unbelievable commerce taking place in China over the past 20 years, China has become a highly technically advanced society. Thus, China businesses have had China Toll Free numbers for a long time.
However, there is one type of China Toll Free number that is relatively new. It’s the China ‘400’ number. Unlike a normal China Toll Free number, the ‘400’ number works from China Mobile phones throughout mainland China. Previous to the advent and approval by the China government of the China 400 number, China mobile phones could not access a normal China business Toll Free number.
Differences between 800 and 400 numbers in China:
800 Toll Free numbers are accessible to landline users only in both North and South China.
The China (400) Type number is accessible to all landline and mobile users regardless of the callers’ mainland China location or type of device used, fixed or mobile.
As mentioned, normal China Toll Free numbers cannot be accessed when the caller is using a China Mobile phone. In addition, the traditional China Toll Free numbers are geographically specific. Meaning that if the caller is in Northern China, they must use a North China Toll Free number. If in South China, they need use the South China Toll Free number.
aitelephone.com does offer the China 400 access number with the international conference call plan.
