One Thing Mobile Search Is Not: Cheating On Your Spouse

Russell’s had a lot to say lately about mobile search and its implications and implementations. Mobile information company 4INFO’s got a great post on its blog about how people have been using its services… but it’s not exactly what you think.

Somebody somehow managed to confuse the 4INFO shortcode (44636) with another persons, and sent a number of messages regarding some relationship issues to it. There’s a string of gems, like:

11/16 7:27PM: I WON’T. UR SECRET IS SAFE WITH ME. I’D BE 2 EMBARRASSED 2 TELL ANYONE. HE’S A DUMB ASS. I AM SORRY UR HEART HURTS.

It gets really hilarious when the person includes a city name in one of the messages, and 4INFO’s server dutifully responds, thinking it’s a request for a phone number or something. After getting a little confused, the person actually starts using the 4INFO Yellow pages lookup:

11/22 6:18AM: ‘SURVEILANCE EQUIPMENT ASKEW MISSISSIPPI 38621’

Plenty more hilarity over at the 4INFO blog, check it out.
