If you want to get the latest weather report, just call 'Tell Me' at 1-800-555-8355. Say, "weather" or dial 932 for weather. Then say your city and state, and speak or key in your zip code, digit by digit. Whichever method you use, you will get a weather report for your city. Say, "tell me more" to get an extended weather report. Best of all-it's free.
