Today i noticed that Google is having an excellent service. This service allows you to search google just by sending an sms to a perticular number.
- We don’t even have to be web enabled.
- It works on any simple mobile phone.
- The service is offered for free of charge (Only The SMS charges applicable for sending SMS).

The service can be used for finding out nearest restaurants, pizza huts, train schedules, currency conversions, weather of the place and weather forecast, movie timings, stock quotes, cricket scores etc…
Only we need to SMS the search term to Google. It will reply with search results while the reply SMS could vary from 1 to 6 SMS depending on the search query been done.
