Toll-free numbers are mainly used for customer service calling. In most cases, toll-free numbers are assigned to those call centers where agents handle incoming calls.

Agents rarely make outbound calls using toll-free numbers. It's also not supported in some countries.

Important notice: Outbound calls from toll-free numbers can be filtered, blocked or not properly routed to its destination by terminating carriers (your contacts/customers).
