The Desert Skies reports
on yet another free way to get that phone number you're looking for. Microsoft's
800-CALL_411 not only gives you numbers for businesses, it will give weather, movie
listings, travel information, and traffic updates. From calling the service, it sounds
like it's built by TellMe. In our initial tests, we like the fact that human recorded
prompts are used for much of the listings and that the number is given without much
delay. In other words, it's more efficient. Like Google's service, you can also be
connected directly to a business or have the number sent as a text message. If you
call back from the same phone, it remembers the last listing you requested, in case
you need to call them back or you forgot the number
