Google has a new, voice-activated 411 service called GOOG-411 you can access from any phone, anywhere, at anytime. With GOOG-411, you can find local business information completely free, directly from your phone.
Call 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411), say where you are (city and state), you can also type in a zip code, and then say what you’re looking for (business name or category), choose the one you want, and GOOG-411 will connect you. And, if you call from your cell phone, you can also say “text message” and GOOG-411 will send you a text message with information about the business you’ve selected. If your phone has Internet, you can also say “map it” and Google will send you a map of the neighborhood around the business.
Google doesn’t charge you for the information or for connecting you to the business you’re looking for. Give it a try and see how simple it is to find and connect with local businesses for free. Keep in mind, however, that your telephone company may apply regular charges for making a phone call or receiving an SMS. For more information, go to http://www.google.com/goog411.
