In 1967, 800 numbers were introduced by AT&T as a way to reduce the usage of collect calls when attempting to reach customer service agents, and as a way to reduce the number of operators needed. However, in the early years of toll free phone numbers, nationwide coverage was not yet a possibility and instead numbers were tied to geographic regions. In 1975, 800 numbers were revamped, and became a pointer to a database. Finally, in 1993, toll free numbers became portable.
