IRVING, Texas, Feb. 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WebSafety, Inc. (OTCBB:WBSI), the leading provider of mobile phone software solutions that help to prevent incidences of distracted driving, today announced that it now supports 88 models of smartphones for the company's CellSafety product.

Using a phone's GPS system, CellSafety's patent pending technology detects when a vehicle is moving at speeds above 10 mph and blocks all texting, emailing and web browsing (including chat, IM and Skype).

With compatibility on 88 models of smartphones powered by the Android, Blackberry and Symbian operating systems and on all of the major wireless carriers in the United States (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon) as well as the three wireless networks in Canada (Bell Mobility, Rogers and Telus), the CellSafety mobile phone application is the most widely available software solution to stop the dangerous and often deadly practice of texting-while-driving.

CellSafety is also effective in reducing corporate liability for vehicular accidents caused by an employee's improper use of a company-issued mobile phone while driving.

"In the more than 30 states that have laws restricting texting and emailing while driving, companies and public sector agencies, particularly those whose employees are required to drive as part of their job descriptions, are consequently facing higher liability for accidents caused by the improper use of mobile devices while driving," said Rowland Day, CEO of WebSafety, Inc. "CellSafety effectively enforces texting-while-driving bans and can decrease an employer's risk of being held vicariously responsible in civil court cases."
