Proove.it via Text Message via Dumb Phone

We understand, we really do! Some phones just aren't as bright as other phones... but that doesn't mean we don't love them too!! If you have a phone with a camera that can send an MMS you can proove.it too! Here's how:

  1. Take an awesome pic.
  2. Text message the pic to i.can@proove.it
  3. Wait a few seconds for a reply to come in
  4. Forward the link found in the reply to all your friends, email it, post it to a social network, do what you wish!
And there you have it! Prooven.
