Charge for dialing 411 - Information ?

What does Comcast currently charge for dialing Information ( 411 ) with the CDV ?
 
I know it was $0.99 per call and oyu could get three listings.
 
With my old Verison I was allowed 2 or 3 FREE calls to Directory Assistance per month.
 
Just curious....

If you're at home and have an Internet connection, why would you need to call 411? There are lots of white and yellow pages web sites.

In fact, I have free 1-800-411 on my cell phone and use it all the time instead of paying the $1.75 per call.
 
 
 
I know how to use the phone book when I'm home.... it's the kids that are the problem.
 
For them, it's too easy to dial 411 instead of taking 2 minutes to look in the book.
 
 
Thanks for the replies.

Darn kids, do they think we're made of money?

Although I'd have thought that kids of the Internet generation would be more accustomed to looking things up online than calling 411.

Hi pratzert,

Each time you dial 411 you will be charged .99 cents. If you accept the option of call completion (this happens when you accept 411 dialing the number for you) you will receive your first 10 calls (call completions that is, not directory assistance) for free, after that charges will apply for each call.

Thanks for posting,

Jim

Here's a great phone directory search package: http://www.argali.com/demo2.asp
There's a free version with built in ads or a professional version without the ads that you can buy.  I have it installed
on all of our computers.
