    OK, I did a search and I couldn't find this mentioned before.

    If you sms google, it will within 30 seconds send you an sms with a persons phone number and address and the phone number is a clickable link to dial the number!!

    The number to sms is basically Google without the e: 46645

    Here is how I set mine up:

    I made contact entry for "_google" with a space in front so it shows up as my first contact.

    Under "mobile" phone number put the number: 46645

    Go to sms,
    pick send new sms, pick the 46645 as the send to number.

    In the body of the sms put the persons name and city separted by single spaces only, i.e., "John Doe New York New York"

    Send the sms, and voila, within about 30 seconds your number returns by sms.

    anyway, if this is redundant, sorry, if not, then great.

    Did you try searching for "46645" or "Google SMS"?

    Anyways, this is indeed a neat little feature.

    You don't need to make a contact entry for Google in your address book. Once you enter 46645 the SMS app will remember it from there on out.

    Yeah, what DID you search for? Good hint tho -- we all need reminders of these cool things once in a while.

    Google's website has a handy little PDF that you can print and stick in your wallet or Treo case for use as a Google SMS Reference. It tells you the phone number and all the types of queries supported, pretty handy. I use this service all the time, sure beats spending a service fee to call 411!

    It's been around a while, when I did pizza, when I first used it, it gave me a restuarant near me that had been closed 15 years.

    also cool UPSNAP (send sms to
    818-312-7627

    place city state (no commas) or
    place zip

    For example:
    Pizza Laguna Beach CA

    response:
    a Five Star Pizza
    b 10 Point Pizza
    c Sammy's Place Pizzaria
    d Ameci Pizza and Pasta


    <reply:>
    d <send>

    response:

    30012 Crown Valley Parkway Suite L
    Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
    (949)249-3827

    if you click the number you can dial it.

    I like the phone lookup better than google, especially if you live in a large city with many choices.
