Answer any Question on the Go – ChaCha

Posted by medliorator on July 1, 2008

ChaCha

Simply text your question to 242242™ (spells ‘ChaCha’) or call 1-800-2ChaCha™ (800-224-2242) from your mobile phone to ask any question and you will receive the answer as a text message. If you have a web browser on your phone, just click on the short website link that’s also included with your answer to see a reference website with more information.

ChaCha is free but standard text messaging rates and voice minutes may still apply based on your mobile provider’s plan.

Medliorate recommends ChaCha for curious folks on the go.  When tested with a specific anatomy question regarding the lower leg (March, 2008), ChaCha answered incorrectly; so don’t rely on this service for your more particular medical queries.
