No need to ogle BlackBerrys and other “smart phones” that let people send e-mail, navigate the roads and view documents. Regular old cell phones often can do the same things, with a download or two. Fancy services for regular phones include:

Flurry (www.flurry.com): This free e-mail service works with several carriers. Visit the site from your PC, enter your cell-phone number and the service sends a link to your cell phone so you can download the program. You can import up to 430 contacts.

SoonR (www.soonr.com): This free application runs in a cell phone’s browser to give you access to Outlook data and other programs running on a PC or Mac. You can view Word or Excel file thumbnails, and Windows users can read, respond, compose and send Outlook e-mail. Tip: Before using either program, check to see what your carrier may charge for data or air time.

Sprint (www.sprint.com): Sprint users can download productivity programs, such as Rand McNally StreetFinder, MapQuest Mobile, Vindigo city guide, Zagat restaurant guide and FlyteSource-Mobile, which gives real-time airline flight status.
