080 numbers in South Korea are the only true toll free number in this country. Other codes are touted as toll free but are not strictly free to call. We have seen other providers promote 070 numbers as toll free but these are registered in South Korea as international VOIP numbers. We are aware that there may be a cost to the caller to dial 070 numbers within South Korea from some networks. A true toll free number would start 080 and be followed by 7 digits.
The correct way to advertise a South Korea toll free number is as follows:-
080 XXX XXXX
The main mobile carriers in South Korea do not have any restrictions when calling toll free numbers and there is no surcharge to pay for the owner of the toll free.
Pay phones may work but are not guaranteed.
- Proof of address anywhere globally may be requested by the carrier in order to set up a number but this is not normally enforced.
- Numbers are not allowed to be used for Calling Card services or reverse charge services.
- Calls can be forwarded anywhere globally but if re routing back to South Korea the calls may be blocked.
Standard lead time for carriers to deliver a number is 30 days although some carriers hold numbers in stock for immediate release. Korea Toll Free Numbers are free to call phone numbers that work across the fixed and mobile networks in Korea.
These numbers are mainly used by international companies who have customers based in Korea. They are often used as customer service lines or new business sales lines.
