I was told about a number for mobile phones that can be used anywhere in the country. 1-800-373-3411 I have not had occasion to try it out.
That is true. It is a free 411 directory assistance number with about 12 seconds of advertising. You could then ask for the city police, county sheriff or state trooper number or a Thai restaurant I guess and they will connect you if you desire.
Thanks. I'm going to add that to my cell phone.
