Verizon Wireless recommends dialing 411 for local and national directory assistance from a cellphone. Dialing 411 provides assistance finding phone numbers, addresses and business information. Verizon subscribers can choose to be connected to a number through directory assistance or have the information sent to them in a text message.
Dialing 411 provides phone numbers for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. It also provides Yellow Pages listings, movie showtime information and reverse directory search. Up to three phone numbers can be requested per 411 call. Verizon customers should note that it costs $1.99 per call to access directory assistance, and minute usage also applies to calls to 411, as of May 2015.
