Send an SMS message to 46645 (GOOGL) to get back a Google search. There are some shortcuts too:


  • send a phone number to look up an address: handy for numbers that aren't in my phonebook but show up on caller ID
  • send an area code to get an area name: where's this call from? Oh, 920 is Wisconsin, I know who that was!
  • send a zip code to get a city name: I'd really like to send an address to get a zip code.


There are several other sorts of shortcut searches, but those are the ones that I've found useful.
