LOS ANGELES, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Tomorrow, October 9 at noon EDT, for the first time in a decade, the Federal Communications Commission will release a new toll free prefix.  Roughly 7.7 million new 855 phone numbers will be made available; however, premium or vanity numbers (i.e., numbers that spell out a company name) are expected to go fast.  



With direct access to the national database of new 855 numbers, Phone People®, a premium service provider of toll free and vanity phone numbers, and a subsidiary of j2 Global Communications, Inc. (NASDAQGS: JCOM), is well-positioned to help businesses search for and obtain the new premium 855 toll free numbers they desire.  

New 855 numbers will be issued on a first come, first served basis, so businesses should visit on October 9 at 12pm EDT for a chance to claim the toll free or vanity numbers of their choice.  Only in October, Phone People will waive the one-time $35 vanity search charge and offer 50% off the monthly service fee.  In addition, businesses that obtain an 855 toll free number with Phone People will be automatically entered for a chance to win Apple products – including an iPad and iPhone 4.

A Phone People toll free vanity number provides the affordability that cash-conscious entrepreneurs and small business owners seek, while projecting an established, big business image.  In addition, features like professional greetings, call forwarding and routing, auto attendant, and voicemail to email/text provide both convenience and added value for customers.
