A New Service from Yahoo! Local

From searchenginewatch.com:

Yahoo Local users can now easily and quickly send phone numbers and addresses from the Yahoo! Local database to their cell phones or mobile devices as text (SMS) messages. The service is free but your phone provider may charge for text messages.

Each Yahoo! Local entry now
contains a link labeled, "Send to Phone." Click the link and enter a phone number (U.S. only). Then, click "send." In a matter of seconds the name, address, and phone number of the Yahoo Local entry you've selected will be accessible on your phone or mobile device. Some phones even hyperlink phone numbers so don't even after enter the number.
