ChaCha is more than a dance

Did you know that you can get a question answered on your cell phone. That's right, as they describe it,
ChaCha is like having a smart friend you can call or text for answers on your cell phone anytime for free! ChaCha works with virtually every provider and allows people with any mobile phone device - from basic flip phones to advanced smart phones - to ask any question in conversational English and receive an accurate answer as a text message in just a few minutes.
All you have to do is text your question to 242242 (ChaCha) or call 800-2ChaCha and ask your question. You'll receive the answer by a text message in a few minutes. You can get the weather, stock info (who wants that now!), scores or answers to general questions in a matter of minutes. Give it a try. Remember two things:
  1. Any charges for text messaging on your phone may apply.
  2. Students may already know about ChaCha, so watch out for cell phone texting during exams!
As always, please let us know in ITDE if we can help.
