SMS stands for Short Message System. It is the system used for text messages on cell phones. It allows 160 characters to be sent to a cell phone.
I have been looking for good SMS Search Services available for mobile phone users and here is a list of what I have come up with. There are many great text alert services out there. But I was looking for something different. I was looking for services that let you send a text and then you get valuable information sent back to you.
Yahoo SMS (92466)
Editor Note: As of 6/1/2013 Yahoo SMS does not seem to work. Whatever I ask for the return text is: "Unfortunately we were unable to understand your request. Please try again"
Yahoo SMS lets you send a text message to Yahoo at 92466 (Yahoo). Then Yahoo sends a text message back to your cellular phone providing valuable information such as local listings, weather, wifi hotspot locator, area code finder, zip code finder and dictionary.

Google SMS (46645)
Note: As of 5/10/2013 Google SMS has been shut down.
Google SMS lets you send a text message to Google at 46645 (GOOGL). Then Google sends a text message back giving you valuable information such as local listings, weather, movie times, translation, area code finder, price finder, dictionary and more.

4INFO lets you send a text message to 44636 (4INFO) and then they send a text message back to your phone with valuable information such as local listings, sports scores, wifi hotspot locations, package tracking, weather, flight status, tv listings, drink recipes, price finder, jokes and more.

Your answer is then returned to your phone as a text message within a few minutes. Go to http://www.chacha.com/ for info.
Send SMS from Computer
The best program to send SMS text messages from your computer in my opinion is AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) or AOL (America Online). Many websites offer the ability to send messages to cell phones but generally there is no way for the recipient to reply to your text message. But AIM lets you chat back and forth through SMS. Other services such as Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger also offer SMS to cell phones, however, both of those don't seem to work with every cell phone. But AIM seems to work with every cell phone.
