Free Directory Assistance

Remember when directory assistance was free? Then Ma Bell started charging for it -- first a little, then more, and now a lot. I saw one figure quoted at $1.49.

Of course nowadays you can look on the Internet, but what if your computer is turned off or you're traveling? Anyway, someone has decided to fight back. If you call 1-800-FREE-411 (800-373-3411), you can get directory assistance free.

And it works, at least for the number I tried. It's an automated voice-recognition system so you should speak clearly.
