I saw this a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post something about it and, wouldn’t you know, when I thought of it again, I had to go dig up the info again.
Anyway, Infone is a relatively new service which, for 89 cents, gives you 15 minutes of talk-time to a real person for assistance (time beyond 15 minutes is billed at 5 cents/minute). What kind of assistance? Well, nationwide directory assistance, of course, but there’s more. You can upload your address book and have the attendant read you information from it or place a call. You can upload your calendar and get information on your appointments. You can call and get dinner reservations or check on flight status or get driving directions … y’know, stuff that, if you’re like me, you’ve said “Gee, I wish I could …”
No monthly fees, no charges of any kind until/unless you use the service.
Oh, by the way, if you have them place a call for you, the clock is running until you hang up.
