Global Call Forwarding offers three types of Norway toll free numbers: Toll Free (mobile accessible), National (815), and Geographic. Callers can dial these numbers from landlines, mobile phones, pay phones, and fax transmissions. In addition, people in other countries can dial the National (815) and Geographic numbers but not the Toll Free (mobile accessible) numbers. Other notable aspects of Norway toll free numbers are as follows:
- Toll Free (mobile accessible) – The number format is “800” plus 5 digits, and Toll Free (mobile accessible) numbers are more costly than National (815) or Geographic numbers.
- National (815) – The number format is “815” plus 5 digits, and National (815) and Geographic numbers are equivalent in cost.
- Geographic – Forty localities in Norway have Geographic numbers. Each locality has a specific prefix for the 8-digit number. For example, an Oslo number will start with “2” followed by seven numbers while Bergen numbers start with “56” followed by six numbers.
