Looking for any useful and FREE services to program on my cell phone.|
Here's what I have so far.
Free 411 service: Self-explanatory. Only catch is having to listen to a short advertisement.
Rejection Hotline: Automated message telling any caller that the person who gave the number does not want to date him/her.
FreeConference - Free Conference calls.
TellMe - A recorded voice invites you to say “Travel,” “Traffic,” “News Center,” “Stock Quotes,” and so on. The system is smart enough to know your location, which pays off when you say “Movies,” “Restaurants,” “Driving directions” or “Taxi.” (This service, run by Tellme Networks as a showcase for its corporate voice-recognition technology, also lets you say “Time” when you’re setting your watch. 800-555-TELL (800-555-8355)*
Free International Calls (Good only thru 2010) - call any of 50 countries from the United States, free. Talk as long as you like. You pay only for a call to the access number in Iowa, which is 712-858-8883; if you use your cellphone on nights or weekends, even that’s a free call. There’s no contract, no ads, nothing to sign up for. At the prompt, press 1 for English. Then punch in 011, the country code and the phone number. The call rings through immediately. However, in some countries, you can reach only landlines, not cellphones. And in part because FuturePhone’s lines have been flooded, its success at placing calls is not, ahem, 100 percent.*
I'll be updating this post as new finds come in.
