4INFO Puts Real-Time NFL Game Scores and Player Statistics in the Palm of Your Hand

Free Play-by-Play Text Message Updates Delivered Instantly to Any Mobile Phone

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - September 6, 2007) - 4INFO, Inc., the leader in SMS/text publishing and advertising, today announced the launch of its newly expanded, free text message service for NFL scores and team and player statistics. The service allows college and pro-football fans and fantasy football leaguers to get alerts like game scores, team schedules, possessions, ball location, down and distance, turnovers and player standings sent directly to their mobile phones.

Fans can also use 4INFO to check the real-time status of any game or player by simply sending a text message with the team name ("Niners") or player name ("Reggie Bush") to 44636 (4INFO). 4INFO NFL search and alerts give fans a simple, free way to satisfy their football addictions -- even when life gets in the way of catching a game.

"Between work, back-to-school and the holidays, football season is a busy time for everyone, but those who wait all year for their teams to take the field again shouldn't have to miss any of the excitement," said Ted Burns, vice president of products for 4INFO. "When mobile customers sign up for 4INFO NFL text alerts, it's practically like getting their own direct line into the game announcer's booth."

4INFO's launch this spring of a similar alerts service for Major League Baseball showed that sports fans are hungry for a simple way to keep up with the stats that matter most to them. The baseball service -- featured on the front page of the USA TODAY Sports section in one of the largest mobile promotions ever -- quickly became the most popular among 4INFO's mobile offerings, with tens of millions of real-time alerts sent.
