We had a Local Vanity Number Search Tool

We did have a little tool that would suggest local numbers that might be possible within a certain mile radius of a zip code but we discontinued more than 4 or 5 years ago I think. It caused a lot of frustration though because it helped overcome the geography issues and showed what might be possible but it can’t solve the timing issues and doesn’t make it any easier to deal with the local phone companies. So even though it was helpful if you understood the limitations, it created a lot of problems and questions for people.

I do think local vanity numbers have tremendous potential. There are way more local vanity numbers activated ever day. There are also way more potential numbers, and there’s also nobody that’s doing even a reasonable job of helping people with them. So there is a lot of potential for local numbers and I do want to use some of our technology to help people in this area.

      Email me and I’ll forward your inquiry to someone that may be able to help. We’re working on adding local numbers back into the search tools too, but i don’t have an ETA on that yet.

          Hi Sara,

          We really can’t help you the same with local numbers the way we do toll free numbers. But here’s a page for the search results for numbers in the state of Texas ending in 9465.


          Take a look at that and see if any of those options really work for you.

            I found one on the list you gave me. However, I tried requesting the number and sending my contact info through a reply prompt and it did not work.

            At this point, I think having an 800 number would be more beneficial (I plan on eventually having a franchise).

            Would you be able to help me find an easy and catchy 800 number with the word WINK in it?

            Thank you for your help,

              The simplicity and speed of your service is amazing! The intended end-carrier told me that the number I wanted was unavailable (according to an FCC database). I hung up and registered the number here and it was active within 60 seconds! Very impressive. Thanks!

              Thanks for the opportunity and thanks for the great turnaround on the toll free number. Your site was easy to navigate, concise and true.

              You helped me get my toll free number quickly and easily and provided excellent follow through, as well. It was well worth the cost to me, to not have to rely on my current carrier. They're great at what they do, but not real good at getting vanity numbers.

              Our company's experience with 1-800 MARKETER and Mr Bill Quimby was excellent. They were very responsive and their professionalism and follow up was outstanding. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to help expand or grow their business through the use of a toll free number.

              Our toll free numbers are accessible nationwide by default. You can add Canada or a few territories mostly in the Caribbean too if you want, although they cost a little more. The simple way to explain it is that you can’t call a toll free number in the North American Numbering Plan from anywhere that you have to dial a country code to reach the US. Unfortunately there is no great solution for worldwide toll free numbers. On the other hand since there’s no common world wide toll free system

              There are UIFN numbers but they have to be set up country by country. You can also set up separate toll free numbers in many countries or work with a service that has different local access numbers already set up in each different country. But none of that is as easy as regular toll free numbers are here. Most people who do business outside of the US, list a local number and their email address. You could also use a service like skype to get a US number which would allow you to get through on a US toll free number. You could also use one of the click to talk services like GizmoCall.com which would allow someone to download a small program to access the US numbering system through the Internet.

              When I got my HP laptop, it came with a whole booklet of contact numbers. I laughed because that really illustrated that there is definitely no simple solution to receive calls worldwide. But you can forward calls from within the North America to almost anywhere in the world. This is very helpful for companies outside of the US looking to expand within the US. See http://www.telcan.net/, (also under http://www.callture.com/) http://www.uwtcallback.com/ or http://www.get1800.com/. Al of these companies can forward toll free service basically anywhere in the world and control it with a portal.
