Cell phone 411 (freebie tip)
by MacHugger - 4/5/06 10:12 AM
I was listening to Money 101 on the way into work and - I think it's Bob McCormick who hosts - said there is a service you can dial on your cell phone that will give you 411 information for free. I haven't tried it yet except to call the number and hear the recording but I will eventually actually use it. I think he said you will occasionally hear an ad but he claims to have used it about 100 times and only heard an ad maybe twice. I think the cell companies charge $1.50 or something if you just dial 411.
The number is 1-800-411-SAVE (7283)
Funny how I kept rewording this post so it didn't sound like SPAM. But rest assured, I have nothing to do with the service, though I think I wish I did if it really does work like 411.
