snopes had a thing on it that i read awhile back. (said it's legit.)
first time i got disconnected after getting the listing. a few weeks later i used it again and as it rang i wondered if i would hear the ad telling the business that i used free 411 but it seemed to me the call connected directly with no ad that i heard nor the answering party.

from what i recall when you say what type of bussines you are looking for it offers you a sponsored listing first. if you choose that (and not to follow through to something else) when they answer a brief message says the call came from free 411. If their is no sponsor you hear no ad. But the end party is supposed to hear a brief message saying the call came from free 411 and they will call in a few days to see if you would like to advertise with them.
