Stop paying your phone service provider for 411 information! With Google's new 411 service, you can access directory assistance for free.  And, it's probably better than what your current provider offers for a fee.  You just dial 1-800-GOOG-411.  Then, you can either say the city & state you need help with, or use your keypad to enter a ZIPcode.  The service can then connect you to the business or individual you are looking to, for free.  Or, you can have the results sent to your phone via text message.  You can EVEN have a Google Map layout of your result sent to you.  Very nice.  Leave it to Google to reinvent yet another stale servicee.  411.  Check it out here.
