I always thought this was an injustice charging for directory
assistance. I found a 1 800 number you can use for free for the
service, it is 1-800-FREE-411. I have used it for several months and
it works and no hidden charges when I get the cell phone bill.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well, _someone_ has to pay the service
bureaus who provide the lookup service. Don't expect AT&T/SBC to pay
for it; they are too cheap. I doubt the bill for same comes to $1.25
per call; in fact there was a company doing it for the 'cost' of one
or two ten second advertisements played to you, the inquirer as you
waited for a response. But, the last time I tried, it was out of
business. Your 800-FREE-411 sounds like a good one also. Maybe our
readers will try it and see how it works for them. PAT]
