For those of you who did not know Directory Assistance (I did not know this!) No charge for directory assistance. Phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 information calls when they don't have to. When you need to use the 411 / Information option! Simply dial 1-800-FREE-411 or 1 800 373 3411 without Incurring a charge. This is information people don't mind receiving My uncle sent this to me in an email, I wanted to let everyone know about it.

I've used free 411 for finding out phone numbers before. It's a great service.

That is great information. Thank you very much for sharing this with everyone. I will program that into my cell phone in case that I need to use directory assistance. It stinks that the phone company would charge someone for this service.

Hi. Polly1. Thank you for this information here. I have already written this number down. It is so good to know that there are free numbers that we can use to call toll free directory assistance. Your uncle was so nice to send this to you in the email.

Thanks much for stopping by. I really don't know if this number still works. This was first posted almost 5 years ago.

I did not know they were charging that much now. When I need to look up a number I go to Verizon on line and look up the information I knew they had been charging for this service, But I had no idea they were charging that much. I think that is way to much just to get a number.

Interesting. Wonder if it works from a Cellphone? If it does, and this discussion was started my friend such a long time ago how come it is not known? I guess it is something definately worth checking out if I ever have to call directory assistance again and see if it works.
