SALT LAKE CITY, UT â€“ Local entrepreneur Joel Carson is about to revolutionize the email name game. The official launch date is June 1.
Imagine a program that allows people to standardize email addresses globally using their mobile phone numbers. Thatâ€™s what Carsonâ€™s new program â€œgmobÂ®â€ promises and the service is free.
GmobÂ® is not an email provider, but a service that works with your favorite email such as Gmail, MSN/Hotmail, Comcast and Yahoo to allow you to use sequential numbers in your address. GmobÂ® even works with company email systems. Nothing changes in the way an individual sends or receives email. Only the address is changed. Accepted file sizes are limited only by the email service provider. GmobÂ® works with any email platform.
â€œIt can be very difficult to come up with a unique email address thatâ€™s simple, professional, easy to understand, and easy for people to remember,â€ Carson said. â€œUp until now, there has been no email service that allows you to use sequential numbers as an address. I really believe this will change the way we create and share email addresses.â€
Electronic social and professional networking is increasingly popular. Carson said Gmob will make it simpler than ever for people to share contact information because, â€œIf someone knows your mobile number they know your gmobÂ® address,â€ he said. He expects the term, â€œ â€˜Do you gmobÂ®?â€™ â€ to become common across the globe.
â€œA mobile phone number is something most, if not all of your contacts already have,â€ Carson said. More than 2.4 billion people have mobile numbers. â€œTypically people are already on the phone when sharing their email address. When telling someone your address you can simply say, â€˜Itâ€™s my phone number at gmobÂ®.â€
Although a user may change email service providers, the gmobÂ® address remains the same. The user simply notifies gmobÂ® of the change. This is an easy way to switch without having to notify and re-notify contacts.
â€œGmobÂ® is the first to guarantee you will get an email address based on your mobile phone number,â€ Carson said.
To try GmobÂ®, text the word â€œgmobâ€ (no quote marks) to 32323. The service will also be available on www.facebook.com/DoYouGmob and the website www.gmob.com.
