I got this e-mail from a mom friend of mine and I just used it last night. It rocks! You’ll never have to pay 411 service fees ever again!! And, you can get great info. when you’re out and about, and actually attempting to get things done 🙂


Here’s a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog411 (1-800-466-4411). 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. I’m 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 great is that? This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!

    You can also text google! Text to 46645 (googl) the name of a store or restaurant and the ZIP code or city and state, and you’ll get a text back with the info. For example, text “burger king 23464” and you’d get the address and phone number of any BK’s in or near that ZIP code. Or you can text the name of a movie and a city, and you’ll get a text with the theaters and times where that movie is playing. 🙂 It’s pretty freaking cool!
