Tellme Networks, is going to launch a free service that allows people to get directory listings on their phone by voice or text message. If you have cingular and dial *8, then you know how it works. The service is designed to enable people to call 1-800-555-TELL (8355) and say "business search" to get a business listing or to search for a category like "cafes."

People can also send a text message to TELLM (83556) with a request such as "Office Max South Carolina" and get a text message back with listings and map links. Tellme also offers a software download for mobile phones that lets people speak their request and see results displayed on the phone screen. Microsoft has recently purchsed the service and can now be found by clicking here.
