    directory assistance

    I was told there was a web site we could pop on that was PDA formatted to look up phone numbers to avoid the rediculous charges for dialing 411. Any thoughts?
    From "Scrubs" - I'm convinced if you removed all the porn from the internet the only site left would be www.bringbackporn.org.

    411.com

    you could even better try Google....

    For example say you want Joe's pizza shop in Beverly Hills, CA

    you would send a SMS to

    46645 (GOOGL)

    and the body of the SMS would be

    Joe's Pizza 90210

    you can use 46645 for an array of things, like movie times, current prices, defenitions, etc....try it out...

    cheers!

    Another option is a free application called Directory Assistant.

    Yeah, that program is the best! You should seriously download it. You can also find it on www.MyTreo.net . The Google search is also good, but it uses up your TXT messages.

    Just make sure if you are using the Directory Assistant program that you have a data plan.
    Sprint Treo 650: Fair& Flexible National 800Min Family plan with the America roaming option included. $10 Unlimited PDA/Visions access, $4 Equipment replacement, 10% Loyalty discount and free PCS-PCS.

    There is also a number you can call if you don't mind listening to a short ten second advertisement. 1-800-FREE-411. You only use minutes.

    Directory Assistant is the BEST app I've found for Palm Smartphones, bar none. Lookup numbers, SAVE them to your contacts with a couple of clicks, lookup directions to the place with a couple of clicks (or plot directions from one address book contact to another), and display a map of a location, all for FREE. Mr Whitt has written a great app, yet he gives you the CHOICE to pay for it or not, depending on whether you think it's worth his suggested donation of $10. Easiest decision I ever made when I sent him his "honorarium".

    I can't imagine why anyone would NOT want to have this program, really.

    (I have no affiliation with Mr. Whitt nor the app - I just find it to be the most useful app for this phone ever!)
