Frucall goes SMS
Frucall, the service that allows you to call in, type in the barcode # into your mobile handset, and get more information about it including comparisons of online shops that might have it for less, is now making their service available via SMS. If you’re in the US and a member of Frucall, you can send an SMS to 32075 with the message FRU 123456789012 to look up FRU 123456789012. Instead of dealing with a voice, you will get a text message with the pertinent details.
Quite honestly, I had forgotten about this service. May give it a try again now that it has SMS support, but I honestly don’t shop much in physical stores.
