Go to a registrar and just start typing
in words. That's the way I do it.

you can also just create a simple text file with a name that interests you and add .mobi
so you get:

test.mobi
run.mobi
car.mobi

etc

then go to godaddy (i use them) and find the bulk checker

that way you can check dozens or hundreds of names at a time

I try and avoid searching at registrars because of the possibility they sell your query to someone else who regs the name if you don't pick it up. My preferred search is via http://mtld.mobi/whois/index.php

You can even do this right here from Mobility by clicking on "Quick Links" at the top right, entering the name you want in the first text field that drops down, and hitting Enter. That will open a new window and if the domain is available, it will tell you, without any risk of it being registered by someone else since it's coming directly from mTLD. Plus, you don't even have to type in '.mobi' at the end of the domain since it already assumes you're searching for .mobi's.

Try it out.

I've had good luck with Domain Name Analyzer from idotz.net - it's free and I've never had a name poached. I've pinged a watch list for months without change as a matter of fact.

There is nothing available. If you absolutely must search then take the advice above and DONT use any registrars and use either the mTLD whois site or this forum. I would recommend sticking to the aftermarket though.

That has nothing to do with this thread and is an ignorant statement besides.

Please refrain from making such absurd comments.

Terror, a few .mobi's are on the apple site. I would think that if it was passe, they wouldn't allow them?

There are still .mobis out there

Today I regged

timeserver
timeservers
turbocars
turboprops

I use an avail domain finder program modified to search the .mobi whois with a dictionary filter.

There are tons of dictionary words still avail but most aren't very good.
