Transport for London has a free tube map for your phone

Well, that's not news actually. The java tube map download has been around for some time as I used to have it on my lowly Sony Ericsson K700i a couple of years back, but for some reason, unbeknownst to me, when I upgraded to my Nokia N70, T-Mobile decided to *not* support the download and offer a wap-only service. Which is a bit useless if you're in a tunnel or on a tube train trying to work out your journey! Anyway, I'm very pleased to say that it's now working on the Nokia N70 as well. And it looks like it's available on all UK networks except Three and MVNOs and on most Java-enabled handsets.

All you have to do is text TUBEMAP to 60835 and you'll get a link straight away to download the application. There's no charge for doing this except your normal data charge. TfL has lots of other mobile services too which are worth a look.
