Dialing Toll-Free from Italy to USA

    Hello!

    I am currently in Italy and need to send a fax for my work to the USA. I realize that faxing and calling aren't necessarily the same, but I was hoping to try anyways. The number given to me to fax to is (800) 800 - XXXX . I tried dialing 1 800 800 XXXX, 001 800 800 XXX, and 100 800 800 XXXX but none of these combinations worked. I read on another thread for another country combination that the 800 had to be altered in some way... maybe that is the case here?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    Generally, faxing and calling work using the same dialing sequence. The thing about toll free numbers is that they are meant to be dialed nationally. Even if you will eventually be able to fax your document, charges will still be incurred.

    In some cases, you can call/fax an 800 number from abroad by replacing 800 with 880. So, from Italy you would have 00 1 880 800 xxxx. You can read more info by accessing the link below:

    If it isn't too much trouble let us know if using 880 worked for you.
