Free 411 Service for Your Cell Phone (or Any Phone)

Speaking of Free Stuff, did you know there is a free telephone directory information (411) service you can call from any phone, including your cell phone?

It's called 1-800-FREE-411. That's the number you dial: 1-800-FREE-411 (1-800-373-3411).

You can get the lowdown on their Web site:

You have to listen to a short advertisement before you get the listing you want. I have been using the service for about a year, and it has never failed.

The Web site says 1-800-FREE-411 will never give out your phone number, which, in my experience, is true.

Given that Verizon Wireless charges about $1.50 per 411 call, I am more than willing to listen to a short ad. (Verizon Wireless 411 : 800FREE411 :: Microsoft : Google)

Maybe Making Communications Buzz — The McBuzzBlog — should be renamed Where to Find Lots of Free Stuff.
