You already know that you can get quick local search results from your phone with Google SMS for the price of a text message, but the service is a helluva lot more usable now that you can set your default location. Just send a text to Google SMS (466453) with
set location [city, zip code, address] . Now when you want to perform weather, movies, or restaurant look-ups via Google SMS, you can just text, for example,
weather rather than
weather 90210. Much more convenient!
