Free calls to 411‏ (via google)
google ^ | unknown | google

Posted on 12/23/2008 6:38:03 PM PST by do the dhue

This is something you will want to have and use! I still remember when AT&T charged me $1.50 to get a phone number from information!

My compliments to Google!

Just leave it up to Google to come up with something like this!

I figure I would spread the word of this free service to Freepers.

I had to excerpt this. Here is all the info:

My compliments to Google!

Just leave it up to Google to come up with something like this!

Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 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 am 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!

Click on the link below and watch the short clip for a quick demonstration.

It says it is free and there was no mention of charges when I called the number. I did it tonight, so I have not received a phone bill yet.

“I still remember when AT&T charged me $1.50 to get a phone number from information!”

I still remember when it was always free. And, dialing “O” for the Operator was, too. As well as getting connected to a busy number, a long distance number, finding out the “time and charges” for a particular call, etc., etc.

Speaking of time...remember when you could call “time”, for free, and would get either a live Operator or a recorded message with the correct Time, and sometimes, Date, too?

AT&T stopped theirs in early 2007.

While the users of such a service will not receive billing for their use, it’s not “free”, as in “free” beer.

It’s just another google service that collects information for sale to increase their enterprise, which is, information brokering and ad sales.

Remember, there is no such thing as privacy on the internet. Whomever can capture your information, can sell it, too.

No, just dial the number and handle the call like a normal 911 call.

Sign up and Try Conservapedia instead of Wickipedia.  Instead of Google, try Pro-Life Internet.

There’s another number where you can call (free) and ask for the answer to a question. Do you have that one?

cha cha number worked. I asked who starred in the movie Outlaw Josey Wales and they answered correctly and even added that Clint Directed the film.

BTW, my all time favorite movie. Seen Josey Wales so many times, I lost track how many times I did see it.
