SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/--Two months after launching, MobiDigger, Inc. is proud to announce the company's first major milestone: 20,000 users. Currently experiencing a 4,000% growth rate, projections show MobiDigger reaching one half million users by the end of 2009.

This surge attests to the public's need for a safe and private text messaging system, independent from mobile carriers, and MobiDigger offers exactly that.

Similar to how email addresses and online IDs display a nickname to the public whilst routing messages to the correct recipient, MobiDigger gives subscribers the ability to nickname their cell phone number. This is beneficial in situations where someone needs or wants to be contacted but does not know the other party well (e.g. dating, selling items online, etc.), or in situations where the mobile nickname is more easily remembered than the actual phone number.

"Text messaging is the most prevalent form of mobile communication -- between personal networks and strangers alike. Sometimes, especially for women, it is not in your best interest to provide your actual cell phone number, which can be traced to where you live or work."says Hubert A-M Moik, Founder and CEO of MobiDigger, Inc. He continues, "MobiDigger has developed a safe and effective way to interact via text message, which keeps your personal information from getting into the wrong hands."

As part of the company's commitment to facilitate immediate, personal and safe relationships between mobile people, MobiDigger listens to subscriber feedback and adds additional safety features accordingly. The newest -- and most popular -- codes within the system are "block" and "SOS"; by simply texting one of those keywords to the MobiDigger short code, the sender can block a particular person from their network, or, they can send a predefined help message to one or more of their personal emergency contact numbers requesting assistance.
