Found at Canada’s Freebies Site, this would be awesome when you’re travelling and looking for your hotel, or whatever really.
1-800-goog411. (a.k.a. 1-800-466-4411)
This is an awesome service from Google, and it’s free — great when you are on the road.
Don’t waste your money on information calls and don’t waste your time manually dialing the number.
I am driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course but I don’t know the number.
I hit the speed dial that I have programmed in (800-goog411), for information.
The voice at the other end says, “City & Province.”
I say, ” Calgary , Alberta “
He says, “Business, Name or Type of Service.”
I say, “Firewheel Golf Course.”
He says, “Connecting” and Firewheel answers the phone.
How great is that? This is nationwide and Google provides the service absolutely free!
No “Information” charge, and no long distance charge.
