Many years ago there were special area codes to call 800 numbers as toll calls. I can’t find any information about this subject, so I assume they no longer exist.

If you call using WiFi Calling the call will be free. Via cellular roaming it’s 25¢/min. If you want to be 100% sure your phone’s in WiFi Calling mode, first put the phone in airplane mode then turn WiFi back on.

Outside of roaming in Canada, dialing 1-800 numbers based in the US must be done over WiFi Calling to complete.  Even if you dial the number correctly from a foreign country, most 1-800 numbers are not accessible outside of their country due to how the billing for those calling the 1-800 number affects the company being called.
