If you have a texting plan, you can do both of those things you mentioned just by texting Google (466453) it spells out G-O-O-G-L-E on your number pad. Great for finding numbers and directions and lots of other stuff, and doesn’t cost a thing other than a text! I do have a smartphone and I LOVE it, but there are many things you can do on a regular phone that you just might not realize. http://www.google.com/mobile/sms/
Please share with family and friends that have unlimited text messages.. The GPS is very useful.
23456 West Street Raleigh, NC to 789100 East Street, Durham, NC (this is the right way to ask Google for directions)
You just type a text message and send to Google and within seconds, you will receive a response.
Here are a few other things I’ve learned:
Check the weather in any city and state, or anywhere in the world for that matter:
weather Raleigh, NC
If you are looking for the address and/or phone number to a specific store, you’ll need the zip code and this is what works:
If you don’t know the zip code, but you know the name of the street the store is on, this works:
Walmart Raleigh North Carolina
Did you know about this?
