We’ve blogged previously about Google’s free text information system
(send a text message to GOOGLE and get info back on everything from business phone numbers to movie listings to local weather), but have been remiss in letting readers know about Google’s foray into free telephone directory listings.

It works like dialing 411, only it’s free, every single time. You have your choice of being connected directly to the business, or receiving a text message with the info. They’ll even send a map to your phone if you like.

Next time you’re looking for a phone number, save yourself time and money by dialing 1-800-GOOG-411 instead. (That’s 1-800-466-4411.)
