Options Media Group Holdings, Inc. Signs Distribution Contract With Ralphs Grocery Company, the Largest Subsidiary of Kroger Co.

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2011) - Options Media Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OPMG) (PINKSHEETS: OPMG), which is in the process of changing its name to PhoneGuard, Inc., today announced it has signed an agreement with Ralphs Grocery Company, one of the nation's largest grocery retailers with fiscal 2010 sales of $82.2 billion, for distribution of its Drive Safe anti-texting while driving software application suite which disables the texting, emailing and keyboard functions of a mobile phone while in a vehicle moving faster than 10 miles per hour. Last week Ralphs received product shipments with initial placement into 165 stores located in California, Illinois and Nevada.

"We are especially excited about this distribution arrangement because deployment into stores has already occurred. Ralphs footprint spans many store formats that include grocery, multi-department stores and convenience stores, allowing us penetration into many different types of market segments," commented Scott Frohman, CEO of Option Media Group. "We are very pleased with the many recent developments relating to distribution of our Drive Safe product and plan to expand further upon these successes over the coming weeks and months."

Last year, Options Media Group introduced its Drive Safe Software, a next-generation, state-of-the-art mobile phone control management software suite designed to prevent texting while driving. Drive Safe Software is designed to prevent texting while driving while also offering parents and employers the ability to monitor the driving habits of mobile phone users in order to prevent speeding. The Company recently introduced PhoneGuard Voice, a cloud-based application that is easy to install on most cell and smartphones and enables the user to listen to both incoming emails and text messages that are read out loud while the user is driving.

Drive Safe can be found at the following Ralphs stores: 1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 31, 33, 34, 39, 41, 44, 45, 49, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 59, 60, 62, 63, 64, 71, 72, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 84, 86, 87, 88, 90, 96, 97, 98, 100, 105, 106, 108, 109, 110, 113, 117, 118, 120, 123, 127, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 139, 140, 144, 145, 147, 154, 156, 160, 163, 166, 167, 168, 171, 175, 178, 181, 185, 186, 188, 189, 192, 193, 195, 198, 199, 205, 206, 207, 209, 210, 213, 219, 220, 221, 223, 233, 235, 245, 250, 251, 262, 271, 278, 279, 280, 281, 284, 287, 288, 289, 292, 293, 295, 298, 299, 604, 609, 611, 615, 620, 631, 645, 646, 648, 650, 656, 664, 680, 681, 683, 686, 700, 701, 702, 704, 709, 710, 712, 717, 720, 721, 723, 727, 728, 729, 731, 732, 738, 739, 741, 742, 743, 744, 745, 755, 756, and 759.
