Google SMS Search Goes Offline Again

If there was a three strike rule for Google SMS Search, Google would have been out a long time ago. For the fourth time in about two months, Google SMS Search went offline again.

The most recent, was the other day. We have two threads at Google Mobile Help. The first thread has confirmation from a Googler.

Googler, Zeke said:

Thanks for posting. Yes, we were experiencing some issues yesterday with the mobile aggregator used by many carriers. This caused a delay in responses, but them problem has been fixed.

You should be able to use Google SMS normally now. Please let me know if you run into any other trouble.

The later thread specifically complains about Google not returning hockey scores. I tried some of those searches and they did not return results for me, but searching for [scores lakers] did work just fine for me.

Here are the past articles we wrote on Google SMS search failing:
