Thumbs up FYI - Free 411 from Google

Just received this info from a friend.
Anyone using this service?
Does it really work for free?
---------------------------------------------------------------

>> Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial:
>>
>>
>> 1-800-goog411. (1-800-466-4411)
>> This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are on the road.
>>
>> Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time manually dialing the number. I am driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course and I don't know the number. I hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed. 1-800-466-4411.
>>
>> The voice at the other end says, "City & State." I say, " Denver , Colorado." He says, "Business, Name or Type of Service." I say, Joe's Pool Hall." He says, "Connecting" and Joe answers the phone. How great is that? No numbers to look up. This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!
>>
>> Click on the link below and watch the short clip for a quick
>> demonstration.

Re: FYI - Free 411 from Google

Very cool, I've added it to my speed dial.

You can also text message google which is 466453 on a cell phone keypad, and they will text back the info to you.

For example "name of restaurant, city state" texted to 466453 will net you a return text with the address and phone number.

Text message charges apply unless you have unlimited text messaging.
