Company description

MobiDigger is a "Domain Name Service" provider for mobile phones.


The service offers "mobile SMS text message addresses" that can be used in place of a person's phone number. MobiDigger provides the user with immediate, personal, and safe mobile text messaging phone contact information for use with friends, advertisers, or any contact. It does this by naming mobile phone numbers via a mobile messaging system using a short code identification number that can be used in any carrier's net. This allows the user to use any alpha, or alpha-numeric sequence of their choosing on a first reservation basis, i.e., first come, first serve, basis. The nickname/alpha-numeric address can be used to connect conventional mobile phones, or mobile smart phones, to each other.
