 TRY GO800 or 46800 to connect.  Text HELLO to 46800 (GO800) and your phone rings in seconds.  Try other keywords like CHASE, PIZZA, HOTEL, LAWYER, WALMART, MOVIE etc... It's awesome, free and it works well.  To further learn about this service, YouTube it..thanks!

Have you guys tried the new toll free service by Justdial? Unlike 1800GOOG411 they not only offer human assisted service but also connect your calls to the local vendors. This is simply amazing as his service offers to clear your queries in the matter of 60 seconds.

My company won't be too happy with this. My company is too cheap to pay for calls to a 411 service (despite that fact that a lot of employees need to use it, since my company will NOT allow any employee to browse ANY websites from a work terminal) so they have EVERYONE use the GOOG 411 service. I'm not sure what they will do after Nov 11th....

Google provided a free service and then decided to take it away.  It is not as though Google owes us anything and in fact this notion of end-user entitlement is unsettling.  Be grateful for what you were given and move on when it ends.

Data collection as only Google could do it.

Those evil bastards.  All they want is their piece of flesh.  I cannot wait till they say, "Well we learned what we wanted from gmail, thanks everyone." <click>

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

 

Well, at least I have voice actions on my Android phone.

Still, it will be less convienent to have to look stuff up for people than just telling them to call GOOG-411

Bing 411 still works: 1-800-CALL-411 (1-800-225-5411)

I liked Goog-411, but I feel Bing 411 does a better job with driving directions, movie times and what not.
