I went through about a month ago my cell phone bill and noticed that Cingular charged me almost $2 for a single 411 call! My husband had reminded me that Google offered a free 411 directory service. I’ve used a few times and I like it better! I get a list of results and it does a great job finding what I want.

Here’s Google’s take on the service:

Using this service, you can:

  • search for a local business by name or category.You can say “Giovanni’s Pizzeria” or just “pizza”.
  • get connected to the business, free of charge.
  • get the details by SMS if you’re using a mobile phone.Just say “text message”.

Here’s the number.

1-800-GOOG-411(1-800-466-4411)

 

Save it to your cell phone and use it as much as you want. (Not really. You don’t want to waste your minutes..)
