I read about free411 a while back in the nytimes, I've been using it since. I travel a lot and find myself making engagements on the road all through free411, hotel, restaurant, clients. Not to mention the savings on my phones 411, or paying for a data connection. Gee, maybe i just like a sweet deal!!

Hey I heard about this service but never needed to try it out until last night. I was out with friends and we thought we had reservations to a restaurant and what do you know, we get there and our reservation means nothing, they'd overbooked the place and we had to wait an hour for a table. We didn't want to give our $ to this place, and my girlfriend said she liked Old Chicago restaurants, so I call up 1-800-FREE411 asking for an Old Chicago in Manhattan. I didn't even have to hear an ad for this, got the number, called Old Chicago for reservations, we jumped in a cab, and got there right when a table opened up. I thought, hey, if this thing helped me so much, I ought to jump online and talk it up.

I actually got stuck over T-day weekend when I was visiting my folks in their new city and I didn't know where anything was and so I ended up calling 411 to get numbers and addresses. Big mistake. An extra twenty bucks on my cell phone bill, at exactly the time of year I can least afford it.
So I learn about a week later that directory assistance is free now. It connects with a pretty good and complete database as far as I can tell. The ad I listened to wasn't all that long, either, so it's well worth it if it keeps a service free.
Because free is always good. Power to the people.

Hey everyone, just thought I'd put this up here because I'm sick of paying huge phone bills, and directory assistance *used* to have a lot to do with that. D.A. used to be free, and it's my belief that it should be free again -- which is why we need to spread the word about this service.
Basically, 1-800-Free411 is free nationwide directory assistance that you can use from any phone. There's nothing to sign up for, all you have to do is call. At this point you might be wondering how they make their money; well, there are ads, but they're not long or annoying or irrelevant. At the end of the ad you're given the option of connecting to the advertiser or going straight through to the D.A. info you originally called for.
Couldn't be simpler, and it doesn't cost a thing. I've tried it a few times myself and have gotten good information each time. Peace out.
