Free Cell 4-1-1 ? ? ? ?

Recommended Posts

This was passed to be by a email friend.  Haven't scoped it out fully - maybe someone has run across this and can enlighten everyone. Especially me.  Scam or a for sure no crapper?

Subject: Free 411

just discovered a way that you can call Directory Assistance from your cell

phone at no charge. I believe Cingular charges $3 or $4 when you dial 4-1-1.

Anyway, here's the number:

1-800-FREE411

The catch? You have to listen to recorded advertising while the operator

looks up the number. So what--you're waiting anyway. Here's the website that

backs up the information and has testimonials.

Here is some more info for cell phones.  Don't know validility of this. Maybe ya'll do.

Here is something worth knowing if you have a mobile phone ...

Have you ever wondered why phone companies don't seem interested in trying to prevent the theft of mobile phones? If you have ever lost, or had one stolen, and if you are on a plan, you still have to pay the plan approximately up to 24 months, and you have to buy another handset and enter into another contract.  This is more revenue for the phone company.

There is a simple way of making lost or stolen mobiles useless to

thieves and the phone companies know about it, but keep it quiet.

To check your mobile phone's serial number, key in the following on your phone:

star-hash-zero-six-hash ( * # 0 6 # ) and a fifteen digit code will

appear on the screen.  This is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it safe.  Should your mobile phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code.  They will then be able to block your handset, so even if the thief changes the sim card, your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.

You may want to send this to as many people with mobiles as possible.

No charge for directory assistance

Phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 - information calls.

When you need to use the 411 / information option!  Simply dial 1-800-FREE-411 or 1 800 373 3411 without incurring a charge.

This is information people don't mind receiving -

Pass it on.  Works on home phones and cellphones.
