You can save on 411 information calls. (1-800-GOOG-411 / 1-800-466-4411) Google 411 has been around a few years, but like many of it’s tools unless you surf around logged into Google you won’t find most of the tools. I generally try to either let my fingers do the walking with a phone book or via a Internet search. However there are those occasions when I need to get a number and I am nowhere near a phone book or the Internet. Sure I could use the Internet on my phone, but it’s ridiculously expensive now that most cell phone providers are cracking down and charging more for bandwidth usage.
In my area a normal 411 call is $1.99. Often I will get double charged because the first operator can’t find the listing I need or will connect me with the wrong listing causing me to call back. Yikes! Having this happen often enough can really rack up the fee’s.
If you are OK with Google knowing what numbers you look up ~ You should be considering all the crazy stuff you look up on the “privacy” of your computer ~ using Google 411 can be a cost savings.
