Get Bing on the go, right from your phone

How many of you have ever been driving around or out somewhere and wanted to get information on things like: traffic, movie times, weather, driving directions, a good restaurant around you (Chinese, Japanese, burger joint, or whatever), local shops? Or maybe you want a quick stock or sports update, need to make travel plans, etc. but didn’t have a direct data connection available to you or you don’t want to pull out your laptop and fire it up to get connected and look around? Well, now you don’t have to! Introducing Bing 411.

Now you can simply call 1-800-BING-411 (1-800-246-4411) and get access to all of this information for FREE directly on your phone! By calling Bing 411 from your phone, you will have access to these main categories:

  • Search for businesses

  • Driving directions

  • Traffic

  • Sports

  • Stocks

  • Cheap gasoline – Tell Bing 411 your city/state or zip code and it will tell you the cheapest gasoline around.

  • Travel

  • Weather

  • Movies

For instance, after finding out that my DVR did not record the Pocono race yesterday, I called Bing 411, said, “Sports,” and “Auto-Racing,” and Bing 411 told me all about how Tony Stewart, having started from the rear after crashing during practice because qualifying was cancelled due to rain, came from the back to take the lead with 37 laps left to go after beating Carl Edwards out of the pit, driving the last 102.5 miles without refueling, and brought home the checkered flag and the win as the first driver/owner to do so since Ricky Rudd did it back in 1998 in Martinsville.

Want to hear some examples? We have a few recorded examples available today up on the page.

So why not give it a try and see how Bing 411 can help bring information to your fingertips today from anywhere in the U.S. today. Just dial 800-BING-411, that’s 800-246-4411.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
