Don't you hate to get your cell phone bill and see how many times you had to call information? Most cellular providers will give you one or two a month for free but after that you are charged 75 cents each time you call 411. I am not certain about all the providers, but if you have AT&T you can send a text to 466453, type in the content space what you are trying to find and the zip code. Press send and wait for your results.
For example: If you are trying to find a number for Joe Smith and he lives in Benton, Arkansas simply type:
Joe Smith, 72015
Press send and if his number is listed, it will send you a text back with his name, number, and maybe even the address.
If you are paying for each text message, those rates will apply, however, if you have unlimited text, then its FREE, well sort of. At least it's not an additional charge everytime you need to use that service.
Another really neat thing is you can type in the name of a movie and the zip code where you are and it will text you back all the different theaters that you are close to and times that movie is playing.
Just wanted to share this info about info. I hope some of you will be able to benefit from this. Best wishes for 2009 to you!!!!!
