Google Introduces Voice-Activated Local Search

Google has recently introduced a beta search application for mobile phones. It offers a on the go alternative to using the Google Maps service on laptop or on your computer.

By dialling 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) from any mobile phone in the United States will enable the mobile phone user to talk in and then get the info they need. If you prefer to have the information at your fingertips in text form, Google also offers users to the option to have the information sent to a mobile phone as an SMS message. Users will be charged normal text message and airtime rates by their mobile carriers if they choose this option.

not bad, however a lot of phones are similar to tracfone and other carriers are minute plans. either way it's going to drain your wallet and give you a pretty good sized phone bill.
