International Toll Free Forwarding with TollFreeForwarding.com
International toll free forwarding has been a hot topic for quite a while now. I probably get 2 to 3 emails a week asking about options for finding both local and toll-free numbers in countries around the world.
The trouble is that while some virtual pbx companies offer international numbers, their country options are limited. Additionally, many hosted pbx companies don't offer the features necessary for managing international numbers and different time zones.
While TollFreeForwarding.com can offer you a full hosted pbx plan, they also do a great job of working directly with your existing hosted pbx company.
Combining TollFreeForwarding.com directly with you existing system provides you with the best of both worlds. You keep those features you love AND add in local and toll-free numbers around the world utilizing "Follow the Sun" call routing.
Typically at this point in the review I list a table that shows the pricing by plan so you can compare it with other companies. For TollFreeForwarding.com I cannot do that because their pricing model changes by country and the amount of included minutes change as well along with the additional per minute fee. Please visit the TollFreeForwarding.com site directly for pricing information.

TollFreeForwarding.com has some unique features for their service to match with their international product.
Local and International Phone Numbers
You have the choice to choose local international numbers and/or toll-free international numbers. This makes it easy for your international customers to reach you without it costing them anything. Calls from international callers will be routed to the destination of your choice anywhere in the world.
International Call Forwarding
Use TollFreeForwarding.com to route international calls to your existing pbx plan. No need to abandon the service you already have.
SIP (VoIP) Forwarding
Need to have your calls routed through VOIP? No problem - TollFreeForwarding.com provides you with the support to do so even from other countries.
Follow the Sun
If you are a true international company you can route phone calls to any international location you choose based on your hours of operation. Calls can be routed to your offices in China at night and to you in the United States during the day. TollFreeForwarding.com also gives you full scheduling for individual phones
International Ringback Tones
If you've ever called an international number you'll notice that the ringing sound is different than when you call a US number. Each country has a unique ringback tone and TollFreeForwarding.com uses those tones so your international callers will be unaware that their call may be routed out of their country.
The following features are available, and available with most other hosted pbx companies:
- Simultaneous Ringing
- Sequential Ringing
- Simultaneous & Sequential Ringing
- Works with existing phone systems
- Reasonable rates
- Instant International Activation
- Unlimited Extensions
- Only 1 "package" of included minutes available and it varies based on country.
- They don't have all the features of some of the other hosted pbx companies.
