Free Directory Assistance from Google

Yesterday, Kathy and I were sitting outside at Munchie (Officially known as Dickey's), wondering about the start time for a movie across the street.

A few weeks ago I saved the number for Google's free telephone number information service in my cell phone. So I called, and discovered we had about 8 minutes before the movie started.

Save this number in your cell phone and you will never have to pay for information services again:

1-800-466-4411 That's 1-800-GOOG-411. It will give you various options and even call the number for you.

Try it out!

    Although I'm a big fan of Google, I am not a big fan of their 411 service.....those silly machines never understand me. If you would rather speak to a live person, I would store the number 800-411-SAVE(7283) in your phone. This service provides you the same directory assistance as Google but handled by a live person and its also FREE.

  2. Google also has a text based directory service. Just text key words to googl(46645), ie. (fort wayne, dollar movies), and you will get a response via text!

  3. Thanks for the additional resources!
