I have a few 800 numbers that see MINIMAL use (mostly wrong numbers). I have them 'cause they spell my company and family names. But don't use them and don't want to get rid of them because they are novel to us.

Right now I'm paying $5 / month / line for the 888 numbers (2 of them) and $2 / month / line for the 866 and 877 numbers (2 of them)  and 6.9c / minute.

Hi,

Generally those numbers are OK, but if you are looking to keep them and get no traffic on the incoming line then why bother? Isn't that just a waste of money?

You are paying for something that isn't used, and also if you decided to seel or not pay the fee then you could always get them back later?

Normally your $5 a month fee is pretty reasonable and as for an incoming charge that's expected unless you have a toll free .

conner - not following what you mean by

as for an incoming charge that's expected unless you have a toll free .

Yeah, keeping them because I might want to use them  later / novelty of what they spell.  If I let them go, might not be able to get them back later.

$5 is reasonable!?  Bummer : (

Hello,

By incoming charges I mean the  6.9c paid , this is a reasonable fee , others can cost up to 10c and the chances of you getting them back is still pretty high, or maybe make a deal with your provider to see if he can reserve these numbers?

As far as this goes I feel like this question has been answered, there maybe better deals out there but those custom numbers are great in terms of what you pay now !

HTH,
Conner.

Here is a link to the group I use, but I have to agree you have a good rate and if you move them remember that you will be charged for the porting service as well..
