Want information about local businesses on the go? Tellme is perfect for you. You can dial 1-800-555-tell (free) or 411 on Verizon and Cingular phones (paid) and get information about local businesses, sports scores, entertainment, etc.  For example, you can ask for an Indian restaurant in Tucson, AZ and then say, “Text me the query” to get a text message with detailed information. You can also text 83556 (“tellm”) with the search query. Tellme was recently acquired by Microsoft and the acquisition goes into effect on April 30th.

I’ve been accused in the past for not giving information about rival services, so here it is. Google has launched a 411 service too. It’s not as good as Tellme, but it’s good for those who prefer Google’s services or want to have nothing to do with “dying companies”. 😉 (notice the wink). Dial 1-800-Goog-411 for information about local businesses.

“..I’ve been accused in the past for not giving information about rival services, so here it is..”

whoeever “accused” you for “not giving information”, should realize that this blog is not officia or exhaustive or only source of information about microsoft or google. Whether we “give” or not, information is out there..

almost sounds like u have been accused of “holding back” information which doesnt make sense to me at all…

I wonder why would anyone has to depend on sparks to get their “information”..!

and whose “rival”?

“I wonder why would anyone has to depend on sparks to get their “information”..! ”

I would like to assume that there are some people who do. That comes from an exaggerated sense of self-importance. 🙂

“and whose “rival”?”

Microsoft’s of course.
