DALLAS, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileTREC today announced their partnership with InfoSonics Corporation to offer the world's first smartphone pre-equipped with MobileTREC's patented mobile safety platform.

The partnership kicked off with the launch of the verykool® s505, which InfoSonics announced on May 21, with plans for future handset collaborations in the works. This is the first fully integrated mobile safety solution that provides users with a family locator service, GPS sex offender locator, a Threat Level index, as well as essential E911 call and text routing with delivery of vital medical information to 911.

Jerry Morrison, MobileTREC CEO explained, "This partnership comes at a critical time for family safety. Despite 1 out of every 16 Americans being victimized annually, the country continues to experience public safety budget cuts. Even more alarming is the ever increasing risk of social media exposing teens to sexual predators. In fact, suspected child exploitation crimes have increased 500% since 2009. These are just a few reasons why we built our personal mobile safety platform -- to provide a means to protect our families in a way that traditional, single-point-of-contact safety solutions can't."

With MobileTREC's solution, simply press the "Help" button on your phone anytime that you feel uncomfortable and it will alert your family, friends, and neighbors by push, text, and email, and it connects you to their 24/7 Emergency Response Center (ERC).  Then, if needed, MobileTREC's ERC can connect you to the nearest 911 operator via their patented E911 routing which keeps your call inside the E911 network. Unlike other emergency alert services that route calls through the non-emergency network, MobileTREC sends your call through the actual E911 network which is specifically for emergencies. More importantly, MobileTREC's proprietary platform provides 911 with your precise location along with your important medical and identification information.

Other features include Community Intelligence that indicates danger zones and safe zones before you enter them, and personalized safety network alerts for friends and family. And, when calling for help isn't an option, MobileTREC's the only platform to provide users with text-to-911 routing.
