Best Phone Numbers provides many phone numbers that use repetition (like 312-888-8888, one of the vanity numbers currently available) or spell out the name of a company. Customers consist largely of attorneys, car dealerships, limousine and taxi companies, insurance companies and ad agencies

We can now equip existing toll-free numbers to send and receive text messages.
 

Being able to send and receive texts over those numbers means customers who previously had to navigate through several menu options and were held captive listening to hold music as they waited for a human voice to answer their questions can now simply text the same number for a quick response — and businesses can reply.

Though BestPhoneNumbers.com also licenses 1-800 numbers, Ferdinand feels there is a growing movement toward local numbers, as people become more frustrated with calling customer service centers overseas.
