DON’T CALL 411 FOR DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE!

I still remember when the telephone company charged me $1.50 to get a phone number from information! Here’s a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog-411.

 

ALSO another service at 1-800-free-411.

This is an awesome service from Google, and it’s free — great when you are on the road. Don’t waste your money on information calls and don’t waste your time manually dialing the number.

For instance, driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course and I don’t know the number. I hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed.

The voice at the other end says, “City & State.”

I say, “Garland, Texas.”

He says, “Business, Name or Type of Service.”

I say, Firewheel Golf Course.”

He says, “Connecting” and Firewheel answers the phone.

How cool is that? This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!
