Phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 / information calls.
When you need to use 411, simply dial 1 800 FREE 411 or 1 800 373 3411
without incurring a charge at all except for the minutes required to make the call if you are using a cell phone.
Now then, that is a great tip on how to get free 411 information calls but there is another source for free 411 information that lots of folks don't know about yet and that is Google's local information services. All you need to do is go to Google and look at the top for the "LOCAL" tab and click on that and you can come up with just about any phone number you need. For instance, if you want to find Creditwrench all you have to do is click on the local tab and then put CREDITWRENCH OKLAHOMA CITY in the search box and we are right there #1 on top.
There is also another neat feature for subscribers of some mobil phone carriers who have data plans with their cellular carriers. Google has a maps feature that you can download to your mobile phone with all sorts of neat features including satellite imagery so you can actually see for yourself what the surrounding area looks like.
My carrier isn't supported but I can access it anyway by simply hooking up my cellphone and laptop and I can get the same thing anywhere I might be.
I just wish I had known about it when I went to Dallas for the seminar. It would have made getting around a bit easier.
