I used to be pretty regular user of directory assistance from my cellular phone.
(I know, I know… I can almost hear all you frugal bloggers out there gasping.)
But now I am a changed woman.
I have finally put into practice something that the twenty-something girl at the cell-phone store taught me long before I became an avid texter.
Instead of calling directory assistance, she told me to text Google (466453) with the business name and a nearby city or zip code to find a phone number or other contact information. In about a second, Google texts back with several of the nearest listings with the address and phone number hot-linked, ready to make a call with a touch.
Super-fast, super-cheap (comparatively) and super-easy. Totally Works for Me!
I now list Google as one of my contacts to make it even easier.
