How can I get info from my (email-capable) cellfon?

Your cellphone has to have email abilities to do this. PacBell OK, Sprint sorry. To send email from a PacBell phone, write a message and send it to phone "121". The first word of the message should be the email address.

Q at ( will answer brief queries about stock quotes, weather, and where shit is. As a quick example, send this message: q rhat; yp 94043 carls jr; w sjc sfo

to ask for RHAT stock price, where the nearest Carl's Jr are to 94043, and what the weather's like in SJC and SFO. It emails back to your phone.

Exploit attempts encouraged, as long as you share how you did it. :)
