Here are some free and useful phone numbers that I am always glad are in my cell phone.
1-800-FREE-411 – Free 411 Directory assistance. Why pay 99 cents a call? They can even text message you the phone number of the business you’re looking for, so you don’t need to scramble for a pen. Details here.
1-800-GOOG-411 – Free 411 Directory assistance from Google. Uses voice recognition, and connects you for free.
1-888-DO-FRUCALL – Wondering if the price you see in a store is fair? Just call FruCall and type in the UPC bar code number, and it will tell you the best price online. Details here.
1-800-555-TELL – Looking for local movie showtimes? Sports news? Driving directions? Stock quotes? Try TellMe. I use this a lot to kill time when waiting around for friends.
Store them in your cell phones now, or you’ll be sorry. Please add your own in the comments!
