it's the toll free number AT&T provides in the US.
Explanation:
1 is the first # you dial when you make a distance call in the US. 800 is sort of like area code here, except that it's free for callers. CALL-ATT represents 225-5288, the buttons of telepones with both numbers and letters. This is easy to remember for its customers.
