Text KGB For Answers at Your Fingertips

Get Answers at Your Fingertips For 50 Cents

Whenever I need an address or phone number for a restaurant, shop, or company, I usually just text Google (4665) the name and it shoots me back the info within minutes. . . sometimes seconds. I was somewhat skeptical of a new service called kgb — which will text you an answer back for everything and anything — because of its cost, 50 whole cents for one answer. And not only that, but unlike Google, kgb will send you much more than the basics. You can ask it for recommendations, advice, tips, cooking suggestions, and more. Why? Because an actual, yes a "real life" person, will find the best answer and text it back to you.

So by texting kgbkgb (542542), and paying the 50 cents, you can get answers to anything and everything on the go. It worked for me without a hitch, but I did notice a refund link on their website, which tells me they'll give you your money back if your answer isn't up to snuff.

Use ChaCha. They now have question restrictions, but it's still better than paying. You can also sign up to be a guide and answer the questions. I did that for a while.

Or you could try asking a librarian. Answers are free and as detailed as you would like. You might not be able to text a question, but you can certainly email, IM, or phone a librarian either at your local library or nationally. Here is just one example of reference services provided by the San Francisco Public Library:

Theres also a website/phone/texting service called ChaCha ( ) that is free, but you still have to pay for the text through your phone carrier. they are very accurate, and usually pretty fast if they aren't backed up.
