      I don’t know how to “reply” to a current thread, with the board being

      in the current condition that it is in, it is actually aggrivating to

      not be able to view messages, individually, instead of having to

      recieve the daily thread as the only means to see messages, then have

      to sift through them, because I have no interest in Autism/ADHD on a

      budget board. Although I do “sympathize” with individuals that are

      affected by it.

      That being said, the reason I am posting, is I noticed that a lady

      said she was annoyed with her husband using 411 on his cell phone.

      Boy can I feel your pain. My son insist every month, even though I

      COMPLAIN each month, on using 411 at least 8 times…….

      When I got my cell phone bill yesterday, it was $230.00. I hit the

      roof. once i called the provider, to discuss the bill, he had used

      $40.00 worth of easy edge (internet features) during the month. Well,

      that now has a block on it.

      when i asked her could i put a block on 411, laughing when I asked it,

      she said, “Well, there isn’t any reason he should be using 411, with

      text messaging available” (I personally knew about the “FREE 411”

      number, but can’t stand using it because they can never get it right)

      anyway, she explained how he can use text messaging. I tried it, and

      guess what it works.

      I don’t have text messaging available for my phone, so If I send one,

      it cost i think .20 cents. To recieve a text message is “free”.

      So what you do is send a text message to GOOGLE. Google being the

      telephone number of the receiver. Not the actual letters, but the

      numbers assigned to the numbers on your phone pad. Then you type in

      your business or name you need the listing for and city state.

      Example: Walmart Kalamazoo Kingdom Come……….then send the text


      Within a few minutes you will start receive the text message in return

      giving you the name address and phone number of the requested

      business. If there is more than one listing in the town, it will send

      a few messages back. If you don’t put the city state, it will send

      numerous messages back for your area code, so be sure to do the city

      state. Try it. It works.

      I couldn’t believe it. So even if you

      don’t have free text, the most it should cost you is around twenty cents.
