Geek Tip: Call Dial Dir-ect-ions For Help

If you don't have time to text google for address help you can always call the free cell phone service Dial DIR-ECT-IONS (347-328-4667) for maps and directions.

Our friends at Switched wrote about the company last week and after learning that Dial Dir-ect-ions sends driving directions to your phone via SMS, I decided to test it out. All you have to do is call the number and step through the voice-activated menus, by telling it your starting and destination points.

Right now the service only works in nine cities, but more are on the way. It's a lot easier than pulling over at the gas station.
