The good news is that you can use any mobile phone to get the latest information by calling 800-555-Tell and asking for what you want to find out, e.g. weather in a city of your choice. Other than your calling minutes, the TellMe service offered by a Microsoft business division is free. I like it because it is so easy to use and get the information I want. I thought I'd pass along the information. Try it to see if it works for you.
For some supported mobile phone devices, you can even download an application and run it on your mobile device. With that, you can ask questions directly from your phone without calling the toll free number.
