    If you want to see the Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/nothing/free411.asp

    Here you go:

    Cell phone companies are charging $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 Information calls. Since no one carries a telephone directory in their Vehicle, they get away with it.
    When you need to use the 411 Information option, simply dial 1(800) FREE 411, or 1(800)373-3411; you will incur no charge.

    This works on your home telephone as well.

    If you enter this number into your cell phone (I named mine 'Info') you will always have a way now to get a phone number if you need one.

    This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends.
