Twice this week I’ve used dir assistance. Paid for it, I’m sure, but I don’t know how much even. They asked “what city please” and I gave them the info and they gave me the number and asked if I’d like to be connected. I said sure. Then, this is the cool part, they asked if I wanted the info texted to my phone. Yeah baby! Then I won’t have to pay this fee again, for this number anyway. I got a text with the name, number AND address. Wonderful!
I’ve also used mapquest to send directions to my phone. Much better than printing a map that I’ll inevitably leave on my desk or still in the printer. I know I’ll have the phone with me.
Google’s send text to phone firefox extension is way cool too. I highlight something in firefox and click the phone button in my menu bar and it’ll pull what’s highlighted into a message to send to my phone.
I just hope my new-found cellphone tricks aren’t taking me over my limit of text messages……..
