Google SMS

Text messaging users can use Google SMS to get specific search information such as prices, definitions, area codes, ZIP codes and phone listings.

Using a mobile phone or a handheld device that supports SMS (Short Messaging Service) text messaging, users can tap Google SMS through specialized queries that trigger very specific replies. For example, entering the word "pizza" along with a zip code prompts Google SMS to return related business listings in that geographical zone. Likewise, entering a person's name along with a city, state and/or zip code yields residential phone listings.

Google doesn't charge for the Google SMS service, but wireless provider fees for text messaging apply.

This service will not be available in India currently.
