Free 411

411 Metro (at 1-800-411-METRO) offers free directory assistance for businesses and residences in the U.S. My calls to 411 Metro have been handled by friendly and smart live operators. It's advertising-supported — I just had to hear a short (maybe 5 second) ad. We've covered another free directory assistance service in the past, but it's nice to have a choice. Personally, I like 411 Metro a bit more than Free411 due to the live operators.

    I’ve tried both actually and 1800free411 is far, far better — faster, more relevant ads that you have a choice of connecting to at the end of the ad, and easier to remember (the name says it all).
