Bangalore: Mobile retailer UniverCell has unveiled Cell Safe, mobile VAS software which helps the users of all kinds of mobile phones to protect their data stored in the phone. The users can ensure security to their contacts, messages and pictures stored in the phone, through a backup in the servers and can even track their lost phone.

Cell Safe is supported by Cell R, a product of Bangalore based mobile VAS application company Fifth C. The software enables the owners of all kinds of handsets to secure their important information to the server by sending the information through messages, at the same rates offered by their service provider.
"We gathered data of the top 40 mobile phone models and developed Cell Safe. We wanted to provide the service which could satisfy all the privacy issues, so it's like more an issue on the process, not on technology," responded K Krishnamohan, Founder and CEO, Fifth C.

The software which is helpful for all GSM operators provides feature of backup for the data through SMS based technology. The users can send the important information through messages which are stored in a server. In the occurrence of theft of the phone, the users can delete all the data stored in the phone through request under the feature of Wipe out. The lost phone can also be tracked, as the software can detect the new SIM inserted in the phone, and also can register the numbers which are being called from that phone, enabling the owners to track their lost phone much easily. Cell Safe also has the option of Lock, through which the user can remotely lock the keypad of the phone through a set password from his nominee's phone.

The software covers 80 percent of the top selling phones surveyed by UniverCell and Fifth C. It can be installed on a phone through Bluetooth technology. The software can be retrieved back by the user from the server if he changes the service provider or the handset by reinstalling it.

The software has obtained Java and Symbian certificate. "UniverCell is planning to bank on the chances of growth in the market through this, as 100 contacts losing today is like losing 100 friends," said Ramesh Barath, Vice President, UniverCell.

"The company has around 43 outlets in Karnataka, and we are targeting to take the number to 100 by the end of the year. This product will definitely help us to capture the booming telecom market," added Rajagopalan, Chief Operating Officer, UniverCell.

The Cell Safe software can be availed at 149 for a storage of 100 contacts, and has the top up of 29 for another 100 contacts.
