"twice mobile" does not seem generic in the TM sense because it does not really describe and tell me what the mark relates to
a generic/descriptive mark is one that makes the goods/services being offered obvious
i.e. "Green Apple" as a TM for an apple company/farm
use of your mark in commerce will give you common law TM rights, but your rights become more powerful and greater in geographic scope when they are federally registered
it does cost some money, $325 for the USPTO fee plus professional fees for prep & filing (which may be around $500-$1000 depending on what attorney you use). You can also use legalzoom to save some money, but even that costs a few hundred I believe.
let me know if you need clarification
