SMS Portals

Soon after I started working the cellular message-based browser effort I learned that there were several text messaging portals that provided reasonable search capabilities, weather and news reporting, driving directions, language translation, flight status, dictionary, product prices, local business, and even a scientific calculator. That kind of lowered my motivation and slowed my pace.

Here are some portals and miscellaneous commands that have been helpful. I sent this text via an email to my cell as a picture message, saved and locked the message so that I could reference it when needed. The links provide additional help. Some portals and commands work better than others. I have had problems with Amazon and Gas Buddy, and uses some cryptic abbreviations if you are not familiar with the city.
