Don't Dial 411 Anymore!!

Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate

It's amazing to me how fast technology is changing, and how advances in cellular technology are making our cell phones mini computers...

Here's a tip to save you money on your cellphone bill... Google has introduced a 1-800 dial up that will connect you free of charge to businesses.  It works like 411 but is voice recognition, and since its a 1-800 number it's FREE!!  Try it.

 800 GOOG 411

Hi Dean,

A big "Thank You" to both you and Steve Hoffacker for the free telephone service information.  Now I need to find a place to keep the information handy!

it works great...saves me tons in info calls and i don't have to pull over to look in my phone book for numbers.  However....make sure all sounds are down in your car as the background/ambient noise effects the voice prompts...and can be quite frustrating!!!!

I assume everyone knows about 18005551212...information for companies with 800 numbers

Thanks for this information.  It feels like the cell phone companies really charge a lot for 411 service.
