Making good decisions is key to enjoying all the parties and events that surround the holiday season. Whether it be calling the taxi after the office festivities or attending the fraternity party with your close friends, it’s essential to keep yourself, and those around you, safe in the midst of all the fun and excitement.
We suggest updating your My Mobile Witness status buy periodically sending a text or MMS photo to your unique account. Provide information like the location of the party and who you’re attending the party with. Should you meet someone new or find yourself in a new place, be sure to send that information to your My Mobile Witness account for safe keeping.
Millions of Apple iPhone 3G & 3Gs users can now fully utilize the safety and peace-of-mind that having a My Mobile Witness account offers.
On September 25, AT&T unlocked the iPhone’s ability to send MMS photo messages. This new service offering allows all My Mobile Witness users, currently using iPhones, to send photographs to their account for storage and safe keeping.
“Imagine walking through a dark parking lot and feeling as if you’re being followed. Quickly, you snap a picture of the person behind you before you reach your vehicle. The picture is instantly sent to officials, dated and stamped in case the unthinkable happens.”

We have come across a few blogs written by real estate agents that feel strongly about the importance of real estate agents using My Mobile Witness. This is encouraging feedback especially knowing that the idea for My Mobile Witness came from our concern about the safety of real estate agents.

One real estate blogger in Wisconsin had this to say about My Mobile Witness…
This could definitely be a must have for everyone. I know personal safety can be an issue for everyone and especially for Realtors, as we have to meet people that we do not know all the time in places unfamiliar with us. This could be used not only as a deterrent but hopefully as a way to just get out of trouble!

Another real estate blogger in Florida has this to say…
My Mobile Witness is an excellent safety tool I learned about this morning. Often real estate agents meet someone at a property (whether it’s a potential buyer or a potential seller). Send a street sign, a house number - anything that may be relevant if you don’t return.

Real estate agents are consistently meeting new people at locations maybe they have not been to before. It is not uncommon for the real estate agent and the client to be the only to people at a location. The general public can be using My Mobile Witness in many of the ways that a real estate agent would use My Mobile Witness. So the next time that you are selling or buying something from someone on Craigslist take a quick picture of the other person. If you don’t feel comfortable with taking their picture, then take a picture of the location. Or you can even send My Mobile Witness a short text message with information on your location.

A technology writer, from the AP, who wanted to do a story on us contacted our Public Relations team. I have to say we were all pretty excited to get that type of coverage in our first week. Within 24 hours that article was picked up by: The Washington Post, CNBC, MSNBC, Yahoo, Salon.com and even The Times of India. In addition to The Times of India, it was also picked up by the Canadian and Australian press, as well as French and Russian sites.
