Up to the Minute NBA and NFL Scores Available Via SMS on All Cell Phones

BERKELEY, Calif., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Synfonic Inc., a leading provider of on-demand data services for wireless phones, today launched a new sports-score SMS search engine, allowing National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA) fans to search for up-to-the-minute sports scores from their cell phones. Sports fans torn away from their TV or radio will now be able to send a simple text message to Synfonics Sports Search Engine with the league and initials of the city where the team plays and Synfonic's search engine will quickly return a text message with the latest score. If the game is not currently in progress, Synfonic Sports will return the game time so fans can catch their favorite games.

Synfonic currently offers a score service with text messages, but as cell phones become more sophisticated and handle video clips, the company will be able to offer fans short video clips of crucial points in any game along with information on the scores. Scores for other leagues will be available as their season begins

How to use Synfonic SMS Sports Search Engine service:
Synfonic's SMS search engine is available at 1.650.430.7183.

Simply send a text message to this number with the word "sports," the sports league initials, and city where the team plays. For example, to find the scores for the Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Bronco's game send a message to the search engine with "Sports NFL Oakland." You can also use 3 letter city initials such as OAK and DEN to get the same result. Look in your SMS inbox for the latest scores
