6 Phone Numbers for Your Mobile Speed Dial

Whether you use voice dialing or speed dialing, these phone numbers are essential for the mobile road warrior. It’s not a top seven list because I thought you might want to reserve the extra number for your BFF … 🙂


I mainly use this service to capture ideas that pop into my head while driving. I’ve also found it useful to email my team through Jott and send ToDo items to

Other uses include sending message to Twitter and WordPress. Very cool for those trying to avoid texting while driving.

When you sign up they give you a phone number to call.

2. 1-800-GOOG-411

Why pay to call 411, when you can not only find local businesses with GOOG-411, but also get transferred directly to the business.

3. TellMe

Call 1-800-555-TELL to use Microsoft’s competitor to GOOG-411. They have a more robust feature set than GOOG-411 and they have a downloadable application that runs on your phone ( that is, if your phone is supported ).

4. GCast

Why not make good use of that time sitting in traffic and record your own Podcast? Just call 1-888-65-GCAST, enter your ID and PIN code, and you are good to go.

5. Pinger

Don’t want to talk to someone directly? Pinger sends you directly to voice mail, sort of like if you were to send a voice email or voice text message. It’s an interesting approach to social networking.


Voice mail on steroids! If you want visual voice mail, voice-to-text service, voice mail filtering or customizable greetings depending on who is calling you, then this is your service.

This service wont go on your speed dial, but its a service that belongs on your phone!

Bonus: This one actually calls you:

If you are one that needs wake up calls or reminders that call your phone, this is your solution.

Now if only I can find a good free email to voice service …
