Generic Savings

This is a quick generic posting.
(Just a warning!!)
But, you will learn something from it, and ultimately it will end up saving you money if you aren't already privy to this information;

411.
I LOVE 411.
I USE 411.
I'm too lazy to let my "fingers do the walking."
I've never had much luck with whitepages.com. The same goes for yellowpages.com!

It was costing me around $12.95+ a month-up until I heard about free 411 calls!!

Yup! FREE 411 calls!!!

1-800-free-411!!!!!

You have to endure the marketing approach when you call-but the calls are free. Personally I'd rather listen to a 15 second message about how I've been selected for a "free" Disney vacation for 5. To press one to hear more information, or press 2 to get your number.

It's worth every second.

Welcome To Crustybeef~
Hope this helps.
Dial 1-800-fre-e411 (I'd give you the actual digits but my phone isn't near me and my little walker BenHAMEAN is..I'll leave that up to you.

No, we dont have this. Those sms messages to music shows and Indian Idol are bringing in a lot of revenue, though.

Austie: Very true-good promotion for you! :)

Soul: I'll give you my last name and location-you can free 411 me!! :) hahahahahhah...actually, I'm not listed, so they won't be able to find me..


Austie: That's awesome! 411 is the lazymans version of phone books..and it's a silly expense.

Portia: What up, P? Are you cleaning the batmobile? weekends suck -d.s.l, woman!!! :) that service the 800 service, you still do pay..people don't know that, but you are charged for the call..any 555 exchange...(I used to work for a phone company!) :)

Tink: I totally agree with you,life would be easier..at least wireless is around now..that's helpful if you have a lappie..

anon: Uh, no, it's not really, cause Google is free, and an iphone is not.

Soul: I was worried..what happened? Is your dose jacked up from the roids? Do you need a massage fairy over in your "neck" of the woods? Or pond, or clouds?
wuuuummmppp!!!....
That's you falling into a soft down safety netting that keeps you safe and cleans your house at the same time!! :) recovery time sucks!! :)

Always,
CRUSTY!

Always,
Crusty~
