Works-for -Me Wednesday (free 411 calls)


It's time once again to post another WFMW tip.

Have you checked your phone bill to see how much phone companies are charging for a 411 information call? It's about $1.00 to $1.75!

I usually need info when I'm in the car, using my cell phone. I've learned that when you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial 800-FREE-411, or 800-373-3411 without incurring any charge at all. In exchange for the free service, you will hear an advertisement before you hear your number.

Free 411 calls work for me, maybe it'll work for you. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
