LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The FCC recently released 7.7 million new toll free phone numbers with the 855 prefix, giving businesses a unique opportunity to secure highly valued premium and vanity toll free phone numbers for the first time in a decade. Starting today, businesses can now obtain a new 855 toll free number when signing up for Onebox, a brand of j2 Global Communications, Inc. (NasdaqGS :JCOM ) that brings voice, fax, email and conference calling together into a suite of business-critical communications services. New customers enjoy a 30-day risk-free trial and can sign up online at www.onebox.com.

- Multi-level menus and extensions
- Voice-to-text transcription
- Call recording
- Conference calling
