    Obviously you're not a golfer.
    i am relatively new with my BB Pearl to the world of Smartphones, WAP browsing, and heavy SMS texting, so i am gathering my arsenal of tricks and tips for the mobile warrior.

    for instance, i just found out that if you text message a query to GOOGL (46645) it will text you back the answers

    for example texting "starbucks 02906" will bring back the starbucks in zip code 02906. kinda cool.

    what other tricks do you know?

    I love texting Google. I don't have the internet on my phone, but I can still find out just about as much information from texting as I could if I had the internet. Definitions of words, movie times, and sports scores are another thing that I use it often for. However, lately, instead of giving me the score when I text "St. Louis Blues" it's been giving me their address. Doh!
