Conclusion

In order to get a 888, 877 or 866 number from Verizon, you must have local phone service with Verizon as well. Verizon charges $27/month for toll free service, which breaks out into a $12 service fee and a $15 minimum usage fee. Verizon charges 6¢/minutes, so by paying the $15 minimum usage fee, you get 235 minutes per month. Additional minutes will be charged the standard rate of 6¢/minute.

Verizon does not have any 800 numbers available at this time, however 888, 877 and 866 prefix numbers are available and are free to set up. There are no phone system features, such as multiple extensions and voicemail included with 888, 877 and 866 numbers.
