Get more details by SMS — Simply say "text message" and GOOG-411 will send you a text message with more information and a link to a map of the business you've selected, free.

This is awesome! WoO HoO to Google! I just tried the other free 411 (800-free-411) and it sucked so bad now. I am glad I came across this today. Thanks Vin Diesel for posting!

That's totally awesome just tried it. I think i'm going to add this to my cell phone contacts. Does anyone know if they track where the call originates from? Just curious if they know this stuff. Cool service hope it catches on.

It wont matter as soon as it becomes popular enough the wireless companies will probably block it.

This is yet another incredible service that the behemoth google has to offer. I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first when I used it, but it has far surpassed my expectations. The voice recognition is just simply amazing and it could pick up any thing I could say and then gave me a detailed address on each store I requested. And on a side note, the new voice is very refreshing =).

Just tried it. What a great system. Plus, the voice recognition sounds like a person and not a the typical 1950s robot!

Oh my God I product tested that company before google acquired it last year! I had to call a few businesses a certain week to improve the automated system and provide feedback.

It definitely has improved and the results are simply amazing! You not only get directions, address, and phone number through an automated system over the phone but you can have it texted to you for future reference.

The service is a lot faster and more accurate now. Glad they worked out the few kinks. This number is a must-have on everyone's speed dial!
