FREE 411...Better than the old free way...

I have 1.800.FREE.411 (1.800.373.3411) programed into my phone. It is pretty cool. If I am driving and I need a number I speed dial and get that number. It is Free...not the $.99 or $1.99 that regular 411 would cost. But today I found an even better service. Why, because with 1.800.FREE.411 you need to listen to 2 or more ads before you get your number. Today I found GOOG411 or 1.800.GOOG.411 (1.800.466.4411). There are no commercials or ads. You just speak to a non-lethal robot, it repeats your listing and then connects you. The only down side is you do not get the number so if you need to call back later you will have to call GOOG411 again. It upside to 1.800.FREE.411 is the number but that is a pain to either remember or write down while you are driving. Try both and see which you like better.
