Today’s Thrifty Techy Tip

I don’t know about you, but I am terrible about calling 411 when I need a phone number. I ended up getting a whopping $4 charge every single time I do this. It is so frustrating!

Now I found out that you can send google a text message to get the information you need! If you have unlimited text, there’s no charge! Otherwise, the only fee you’ll be charged is whatever it costs you to receive a text message.

Want to know how to do it?

You’ll send the text to 466453 (“GOOGLE” – Brilliant, I know!). Then, just tell them what you need. For example, I needed to call the Murphy, NC Walmart the other day. I typed in walmart, murphy, nc and sent it off to google. Not ten seconds later, I had the phone number sent right to my phone! Quick and easy!

You can also find local restaurants, movies, sports updates, and so much more…. it’s goggle on your phone! If you want more details, go here.

Hope this helps ya’all out. I can’t tell you how much money this is going to save me!

    Also you can call 1-800-Free411 (1-800-373-3411) That way if you have problems getting the correct number you can talk to a person! 🙂 If its a number you will be needing more than once and you are calling from a cell phone, it gives you the option to have it sent to you in a text message.
