  1. Wow, it looks pretty good. I like how you can select your carrier/model, so they provide distinct services.

  2. 4INFO (shortcode 44636) has a similar text message offering, but provides several additional services that Yahoo! does not: sports scores (“packers” “nfl”), fantasy stats (“joe crede” “priest holmes”), movie times (“movies 92111″), flight times (“swa san jose san diego”) and a beta version of mobile download search. All these services can be accessed via SMS (44636), WAP (http://wap.4INFO.net ), or email to search@4INFO.net.
