Skype and Toll-Free Numbers

I thought Digest readers would be interested to know that Skype users
can call North American toll-free numbers for free using Skype. Toll
calls require having money in your Skype account.

I have not tried to dial any toll-free numbers outside of North America.

If memory serves me correctly, two or more businesses can share a
toll-free number. Calls in one part of the country would get company
"A" while another part would get company "B". Am I remembering this
correctly? Is this still the case? I'm curious how Skype would
handle such a call.
