HOW TO track Indian Stock Exchanges (BSE, NSE) via SMS

Try these inexpensive ways to find out Stock Exchange indices via a text message:
1. IFTTT (If-This-Then-That website) - IFTTT has "recipes" powered by Yahoo Finance, to set a trigger so that whenever a stock (the symbol for BSE Sensex is ^BSESN and that of NSE Nifty is ^NSEI)  is rising or falling beyond a pre-set figure, you can be alerted by a text message or email or other ways. Looking at this public recipe for NSE, you can build your own for BSE or any other stock traded in the Stock Exchanges.

2. txtWeb is a platform to make content and services available via SMS to consumers with just a basic phone (i.e not a smart phone with a data plan). Developers can build services on this platform for free. @shareprice is one such service on this platform that can get you Stock Exchange indices in almost real-time. You will need to type @shareprice.indices and send the text message to 9243342000. An SMS will pop up within seconds with the desired info.

Update (11/Aug/2014): txtWeb will now work only with the number 51115 and according to info on their home page the number is valid on Idea, Tata Docomo, Airtel, Vodafone (upto Rs 1/SMS)

You can also find weather details(@weather Bangalore), status of a train, content from a Wikipedia article (@www wikipedia {keyword}) using this helpful service.
