Just want to know if ‘Free 411’ is really free from Cox in RI or am I being charged like it’s a 411 call?
If it's a 800 number, it should be free. Perhaps a moderator can comment.
I googled it and it seems it's a ad based service. You have to listen to a 10 second ad before you can speak and then there is another before you can get the result. Kind of annoying if you ask me, but at-least it's "free". See the Wiki for more info.
