Caller ID isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's difficult to find out the identity of a person who calls from a toll free number. If you would like to know about the identity of the person or company representative placing the phone call, you won't be able to get that information by simply knowing the number. However, there is no reason why you can't do a bit of sleuthing to discover who it is that is placing the call.

Getting Started
