Here are some important things for you to remember about toll free numbers:
Toll free numbers only operate within each country/region. For example, your users won't be able to call an Australian toll-free number outside of Australia.
Acquiring or porting Universal International Freephone Numbers (UIFN) isn't supported.
In many countries/regions, the regulator/telecommunication agency in the country/region requires each toll free phone number to maintain at least 100 minutes of usage per month in order to retain the number.
In the event you get a toll free number and the usage of the number doesn't meet these minimum requirements, Microsoft may be compelled by the regulator/telecommunication agency to reclaim the number from you.
Wireline, fixed line, and mobile network access to toll-free numbers may be fully or partially restricted. The dialing format describes the required access codes within each country/region to place calls using the toll free number.
