Free 411 Calls
I saw this information advertised on a blog (I apologize for not remembering which one it was) quite a few months ago and started using this service immediately!
1-800-FREE411 is an information service that is offer free of charge (their advertisers foot the bill).
When you dial 411 to access a phone number you are charged a fee (for me it's $1.75) by your phone company.
If you call 1-800-FREE411 that call will be completely free (with the exception of using minutes by a cell phone provider).
My husband loves to dial 411 every time he turns around and before this was costing us an additional $10 or more dollars on our monthly bill!
I programmed this number into both of our cell phones (and other family members and friends) and we have never paid for the information service since then!
It takes approximately 1 minute to gain access to the number you are inquiring about! You will have to listen to approximately 2 - 15 second advertisements (one at the beginning and one right after you ask for the number).
It only took a few days for me to get use to using this service and ever since then the advertisements do not bother me!
I would say that 20 seconds of my time is worth that $1.50 fee wouldn't you???
Give it a try...you won't be disappointed!
You can go to their website here to read more information on their service!
We all love free things right???
