GizmoProject Adds 611, Giving Away $10,000

Gizmo ProjectI realize I’m a little late to this party, but I just gave Gizmo Project’s new 611 service a shot. For what it is, it’s not bad.

By dialing 611 from your Gizmo Project client or other device you have configured with the Gizmo Project SIP credentials, you can do a number of useful tasks:

  • Check your CallOut balance
  • Buy more CallOut minutes
  • Set up and/or listen to your voice mail
  • Enable call forwarding/call hunting
  • Find out the answer to the age-old question “Why did the chicken cross the road?”

Random callers to the 611 service will be given their share of $10,000 in the form of $10 of CallOut credits. It’s Michael Robertson’s way of saying “thanks for trying out my new feature on Gizmo Project.”

I didn’t win any credits, but maybe you will. If you win or have something to say about Gizmo Project’s 611 service, leave a note in the comments.
