Free 411

I’ve always lamented that both land line and mobile phone providers charge a couple bucks to use 411 service. I’ve been using my wireless web to look up numbers, but that takes a bit of time. Now, I can just call 1-800-Free411 as long as I don’t mind hearing short ads before the number is given. The service will even connect you free of charge.

That’s a great business model. People tend to pooh-pooh the forced ads, but they generate sales and they allow “free” use of the services being offered. I love the idea.
