The 877 area code is a North American toll-free service that does not have a geographic location. Area code 877 is one of a number of area codes reserved for toll-free calls.

Companies offer toll-free numbers so that customers do not have to pay for calls for technical support, customer service or other inquiries. Individuals can also apply for a toll-free number. The owner of the number pays for all call charges.

Toll-free numbers are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission and managed by SMS/800. In the United States, toll-free numbers use the area codes 800, 877, 866, 855 and 844, and new toll-free area codes are added as needed.
