Free 411 directory assistance from your cell phone or mobile

Google launched the free 411 (directory assistance) service not too long ago in Canada. Many of you might have the 411 service included with your Cell phone or land line phone packages and might have to pay extra every time you have to make a 411 directory assistance call.

Google's 411 (also called GOOG-411) lets anyone in Canada and use this service from a land line or cell phone free of charge. For folks residing in Canada and US can simply dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) anytime anywhere and ask for a business or personal listing stating the name of the state / province and the city.

It would even connect your call to the business listing for free. If you are calling from a cell phone, say "text" and it would text message the details and listing to your cell phone. If you also have an internet connection, you can say "map" and it would send the map data along with the business listing.
