What should I know before I sign up?

  1. Make sure your cell phone provider offers text messaging (AKA "SMS") and that this service is enabled for your account/phone. Most cell phones these days come with it.
  2. We offer this as a free service, but be aware that some cell phone providers charge for incoming messages. Then again, others don't. So if you're not sure, contact your provider. (If they do charge, it's likely inexpensive -- like, 2 cents per message.)
  3. Be aware that the reliability and timeliness of these messages depends on your phone company. We'll hold up our end of the deal and send out the reminders on time -- but your phone service provider, which passes the message from us to you, might introduce a delay. This totally depends on your service provider.
