    are 800/toll-free numbers included in Cricket plans?

    I'm looking for a carrier that provided calls to 800/toll-free numbers for no additional cost. A poster on another forum suggested Cricket. Does anyone know if calls to 800 numbers are indeed included at no additional cost with the various Cricket plans?

    Yes 800 numbers are no xtra cost under all of cricKet's plans. Do 800 numbers cost xtra with other carriers or just use airtime? They are supposed to not cost anything to call as they are "Toll Free". cricKet does not have airtime charges so talk all you want on a 800 call, your bill will be the same.

    any plan that doesn't use minutes can of course call toll free numbers for free, same as all other US numbers.

    But for plans that track airtime, nearly all of them count minutes to toll free numbers.

    as far as i know only LycanMobile USA is different, and does not count minutes to toll free numbers.

    no plan costs EXTRA to call them, at least in the usa.

    Other than using your allotted minutes (if applicable) don’t they all?

    Maybe he meant 900 numbers guys. Instead of toll-free he meant toll. Lolol. I've never heard of anyone charging EVER. Except against minutes.

    800 numbers, while still useful/common are not as significant to most people as formerly. Prior to cell plans which include long distance, there was a significant cost savings to callers. Now it seems they are more of just a single number to use to reach organizations with multiple locations using a sort of main number but other that with included long distance, doesn't seem that much of advantage anymore.

    Generally any calls to 900/976 numbers are blocked.

    Considering this is a 12-year-old post, I'm guessing there were plenty of Cricket plans that limited the minutes used back in 2006.
    Not bad for a free unlimited line from Sprint!

    Especially since that Cricket is long dead and buried.

    Probably did a search and did not notice the date.
    This might be a record.

    I saw one resurrected from the 90s on DSL reports. It was a rollercoaster for me since I didn't notice.

    Did Cricket exist at the time of this post? Maybe it was AIO?

    Cricket was a publicly traded company known as Leap Wireless. AIO was the AT&T brand which merged into Cricket after AT&T purchased Leap Wireless.
