Tired of paying $1.25 for directory assistance to your cell phone provider

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty World East Carolina

Then try GOOG 411.  That's right a new service I stumbled on the other day.  As a Realtor, I give the cell phone providers additoinal revenue each month using their enhanced directory assistance.  At $1.25 per call it does not take long to rack up huge overages. 

To use the service you dial 800-GOOG-411 and the system acts like regular 411.  Voice recognition technology prompts a city and state, or you can clarify a business catagory, or zip code.  It will even send you a text with the phone number just like the enhanced 411 you pay for monthy.  For additional Short cuts for your phone, just go to GOOG-411 cheatsheet .

You've got to be asking yourself, "How much is it?  It is absolutely, FREE!

Hope you put all those 411 dollars back into your pocket this year.
