Do you sometimes wish you had an access to the internet or yellow pages or GPS system when you are traveling? Well, I was in the same situation last month when SB told me about 1-800-GOOG-411. Ever since then, I have been using it like crazy and am loving it! Their voice recognition program is sophisticated and quite well trained. And best of all, it's FREE!!!

So next time you're searching for a local business or phone number, pick up the nearest phone and give it a try. Call 1-800-GOOG-411.

PS. If you call from your cell phone, you do actually using your minutes. :-)

I love that service too. Also when using the cell, if you dial 411, you use both your minutes and get dinged an additional fee from the operator.

This way, you just use additional minutes.

or is it world wide?

Aspi, hi! you're absolutely right... with this service the only thing we use is the minutes so it's much more economical.

Jigar, do give it a try. You just might get addicted to it. ;)

Kumar, I think it's only for the US right now, not international. But I don't think it will be long before this type of service is available in India. I think google is working on the US residential service for now as per their FAQ page.
