Its been bugging me for ages about a few things mobile-wise from the mid 90's..
There was a 'trick' that enabled people with an 0973 number to send free sms via a foreign SMS centre.. ALSO.. there was a free service that was set up by some researchers which was text based.. you would text a command to their service and it would return a result. I think it would take email and text it back to you- or give weather etc.. does anyone remember what that service was called??
Happy new year,
