Did you know that dialing 4-1-1 for directory assistance costs you a service fee and valuable cell phone minutes?
Many users aren’t aware there’s a free directory assistance service for those times you need to find a number and you don’t have Internet access or a smartphone nearby.
Just dial 1-800-FREE-411 (or 1-800-373-3411) from your phone. Since the service is sponsored by advertisers, you’ll have to listen to a 10-second ad before you can speak, but the service is free, easy to remember, and easy to use.
I recommend saving the number as a contact in your phone, that way it’s there whenever you need it!
