AT&T's text-based yellowpages.com

AT&T-owned Yellow Pages now has its own short code: YP411. AT&T's mobile users can text the name of a business or business category with a city and state or zip code and receive the top three listings for their request. Smartphones and PDAs that support WAP will receive a link that can provide more information about the business, including driving directions and related maps. Yellow Pages has been building out its mobile offerings for the past few months with a send-to-mobile feature that allows PC-based visitors to port results to their phone as well as an optimized browser interface.
