• In North America, a useful number to have in your contacts is Google 411. Simply say the name or company you want and they'll look up the address or even connect you. It's a toll-free number so if you pay for long-distance calls, it's also a great way to save some money. 1-800-466-4411 (GOOG-411)

Add GOOG-411 with the default Contacts application, "Reload Names" in BigNames, and it'll show up in your list.
