Re: Me thinks the boyz and girlz at ....

First I've seen it. My cell charges 75 cents for a 411 call, so that may be useful.

Of course, my new iPhone has Google Maps built in which works pretty well too.

Download WhitePages for your iPhone. You'll never need 411 again.

not as cool as the iPhone shazam app the listens to 20-40 secs of music from a radio or cd player, identifies the song, displays the name, author, time, label and lets you down load it from iTunes with a click (and 99 cents).

But goog411 is pretty cool and so is the iPhone whitepages app if you have an iPhone and live where att has good coverate. Wish I did.

Yeah, but when will the iphone be available on a decent network--like Verizon?

Think Shazam is cool? Try Midomi. You Grab it, sing it, or say it. it finds it, you can bookmark it and/or download it from iTunes. Does all Shazam does plus more - FREE. These iPhone apps are pretty cool. I used Midomi in a Red Lobster one evening and it correctly recognized the song (You've got a friend) and the artist - and it wasn't James Taylor.

I tried Goog411 last night at a client's house and it worked really well. I thought they said you could send a text to that number and get the address andmap to it, but it didn't work for me. I might have been doing something wrong, though.

2010. Apparently, that's when their exclusive deal with AT&T expires. Then again, I've had very few signal problems with mine.

A friend bought two of the original iPhones. Before signing on to AT&T, he took the SIM card from his pay-as-you-go phone and it worked just fine. They're still using them without any issues.

Or you could just jailbreak it and run whatever you want.
