You can have Google send you a text message with a link to a help page by opening www.google.com/intl/en_us/mobile/index.html on your PC's browser. Or you can just go to mobile.google.com on your phone's browser.
In addition to text messages, that page has links to a Google search page formatted for the phone and access to Google Maps, Gmail, and Blogger.
