Fun numbers are free (no cost) numbers you can call to either test your connection or get several services. The connections to these numbers are usually free of charge, as the "lines" are using the internet to transfer your voice between you and the service.

Please note, this doesn't mean that all services provided by the operator are at no charge! Some numbers, like the following test numbers, are provided by different phone operators at no cost. Some operators are even allowing connections to toll-free numbers.
