- SMS Search - This is what I used to use a little, but there are lots more commands that you can use. You can look up movie times, weather, etc. For example, I sent the text message "weather 43214" to 46645 and got back a message with the current temp, wind, humidity, and the ranges of temperatures expected for today and the next two days.
- Google Calendar - After you go online to set it up, you can text GVENT things like "DAY" and it will send you a text with all of your scheduled events for the day.
- Blogger - You can text a message to your blog and it will add it as a new post.
All of these things definitely make a plain old texting cell phone much more interesting. So we'll see if we actually suck it up and give up our fancy phones.
