4INFO (shortcode 44636) has a similar mobile search text message offering, but provides several additional services that Google does not: sports scores ("lakers" "duke"), fantasy stats ("kobe bryant" "jaromir jagr"), flight times ("swa san jose san diego") and a beta version of mobile download search. All these services can be accessed via SMS (44636), WAP at http://wap.4INFO.net , or at http://www.4INFO.net.

Why 4INFO instead of Google?
“When asked recently for the address of a trendy downtown Manhattan club called Butter, both 4Info and Yahoo! located it on the first try. But Google sent back results better suited to baking.”
