SQL Wildcard and @variable not working

The wildcard is not working correctly with the variable for some reason.
If I put 2101% directly in the search string it works fine.
If I replace the @addrinfo.value = "2101" it doesn't work? or ="2101%"
I have also tried changing the @addrinfo datatype and no go.
I don't want to make a stored procedure if I don't have too.

Thanks so much for any help.

Dim viewall As New DataSet
        Dim getnumber = Split(Add_Address.Text, " ", -1, 1)
        Add_Site.Text = getnumber(0)
        Dim DetailStr As String = "SELECT HPLocID, Site, Mapsco, ServiceAddr, SiteType, City, Zip, Newmain, NewFax FROM Locations where ServiceAddr LIKE '@addrinfo%'"
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand(DetailStr, MyConnection)
        Dim satlist As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)

        cmd.Parameters.Add("@addrinfo", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 10)
        cmd.Parameters("@addrinfo").Value = getnumber(0)
        cmd.Parameters("@addrinfo").Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
        satlist.Fill(viewall, "Locations")

It's literally trying to find '@addrinfo....' so it will find "@addrinfoPlus Extra Text", but not what you want it to.

Try " LIKE @addrinfo + '%' "
