Stop Paying for 411 Info Calls On Your Cell Phone

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

logo Just leave it to Google to come up with something like this! Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog-411.

This is an awesome service from Google...and it's free...great when you're on the road.


Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time manually dialing the number...Here's an example of how it works.  I am driving along in my car and I need to call Precision Inspection to cancel an inspection because my buyer wants to terminate their contract and I don't know the number.  I hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed...1-800-goog-411.


The voice at the other end says, 'City & State.'  I say, 'Austin,Texas,'. He says, 'Connecting' and 'Precision Inspection' answers the phone.  How great is that?  This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!


Click on the link below and watch the short clip for a quick demonstration: www.google.com/goog411

The phone number is 1-800-466-4411.

Some of those "services" are recording cell phone numbers for future advertising texts.

If it works, this is very neat.  I never talk to those machines, I always hit 0 but I should try this out.  Thanks for posting about it.
