    Hi, All

    I recently learned that you can get *free* directory assistance from your mobile or landline. There are a few different services out there and I've been testing them for quality. Most use a really antiquated form of voice recognition that doesn't work very well, esp. from a cell connection.

    The best one I've found so far is 1-800-411-METRO. It begins with a recorded voice asking your listing just like the phone company version, then goes to a live English-speaking operator who connects the call at no additional charge. You just need to listen to a really quick ad (which is better than spending a buck).

    Anyway, thought I'd share what I've learned. I'm the ultimate cheapskate and I think the 411-METRO thing is the very quality of the freebies.

    Re: FREE directory assistance

    Directory assistance generally cost more than a buck.
    Heres a tip...save the 411 METRO to your phone book.
    I never use DA, but I found that number a few months back and gave it to my son (who is on my cell account).

    Thanks for weeding out the best and sharing.
    An exaggerated sense of entitlement is evident when one presumes privileges to be inalienable rights.
