  • Access driving directions
  • Send listings to mobile phone or device via SMS
  • Access click-to-call functionality
  • Sort results by relevance, distance or name

The contest runs until October 17, 2007. No purchase is necessary to participate. The contest is open to legal US residents, 18 and older. The contest is not valid in New York and Florida. Winners will be notified via e-mail.

"Today, people are æon the go' and need to be able to search for information whenever, wherever," Black said. "Local Mobile aims to meet this need with superior mobile local search capabilities."
