    Thanks for that, but I think this has been up for quite some time now; I think this is old news ;)

    Probably is. But I figured if I just learned of it, maybe others haven't seen it yet.

    It may be old news but I didn't know about it either. I had a lot fun looking up a variety of items on it and I can see it will be quite useful. :)

    Thank you M_Six, for posting the info.

    Hey, If I wouldn't have pointed out that this was old news, someone else would have ;) I've known of this service but never used it myself.

    With all the new features available for your phone, it's hard to keep track of everything that's available outhere especially for new members, thanks for the heads up M6....

    That's true. :eek:

    Speaking of which I saw a cell phone program on the Travel Channel and in Japan (Tokyo), you can put your phone in front of a vending machine and it scans some sort of barcode or something similar to that on your phone and it pays for your snack or drink. :)

    I think it uses RF to tell the machine what account to charge for the soda and candy bar. Great concept, but is it "secure" like BT? You can't beat having cash in your pocket.

    I don't know about that.

    The show didn't do into much detail about the show....since it showed some women using her phone to buy a drink...and the show was mostly about following workers in Tokyo and show how busy it is in Tokyo.

    I think the carrier was NTT DoCoMo, but I am not sure.

    It looks like it would be handy, but after visiting their fourm it seems a lot of people like me can't use it because it only allows shortcode which my provider (CellOne) does not allow. I tried one of the other free 411 info sites that uses a ten digit number and it worked. I just wish Google would make theirs avalible with a ten digit number as well. :(

    I was playing around tonite and found a couple of similar sites one which is www411sms.com, what is strange is that if you try to find the site with Google it returns a not found message but with Yahoo or Excite it shows right up.
