Off-Topic But Very Useful Info: Free 411 Service

Received this tidbit in the e-mail today and found it very intriguing:

"Cell 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 at all except for the minutes required to make the call. This is information people don't mind receiving, let people know."

Being a skeptic, and doubtful of some of the hoax e-mails that I sometimes receive, I checked this out on The Urban Legends Reference Pages at http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/nothing/free411.asp

The only drawback is that sometimes you are required to listen to a 10-second advertisement from an advertising sponsor. I have no problem with that, especially if it saves me some money on my cellular phone bill.
