    Another thread made me think (and I don't think we have this on the site yet) to start a thread that had free alerts via SMS and/or Email that everyone has.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I'm sure some people can use this but Viigo is a free RSS program that combines essentially all this information in one place, and BBWeather on my Verizon 8830 works just fine too.

    Yes, I do use Viigo also, however, I don't want to always have to look at it to see what news is breaking or sports scores.

    With the email/sms alerts, I set different alerts for each (use webalerts or ewhatever) so I get it as it happens. Quick pull out of the holster, read it, and I'm on my way without having to sift thru all the rss feeds.

    As someone who doesn't use text msg'ing much and has no text msg'ing plan, I like the fact that many sites, including Yahoo and CNN, will send email updates. Another site that has free updates is ABCNEWS, http://abcnews.go.com/ -- go to the bottom of the page and you'll see a link for email and news alerts.
