Are 800 numbers necessary?

We've had a personal 800 number since the mid 90's.  It made sense when everyone had to pay by the minute for long distance.  Now, no one pays extra for long distance. 

As a business, I prefer calling a real area code rather than an 800 number.  The only time it makes sense is if it is really easy to remember the last 7 digits.

Not to mention that there's already much cheaper online alternatives like Skype. 800 numbers are no longer practical unless they are free.
