Many of our coaches and teachers use Remind as a texting service for our students and parents. Please be aware of this Verizon issue with Remind… It will go into effect on January 28th
Due to a new fee imposed by Verizon, Remind can no longer offer text messaging for devices on the Verizon Wireless network. As a result, anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier will no longer be able to receive or send text messages through Remind.
How to keep using Remind
If you have Verizon Wireless as your phone carrier and currently receive Remind messages by text, download the app or turn on email notifications for your account. Or, if your class includes participants who may be affected by the service disruption, ask them to do the same by sharing the following instructions.
Both of these options are free of charge.
On your phone: Turn on smartphone notifications (RECOMMENDED)
Download the free Remind app on the iOS App Store, on Google Play, or at rmd.me/a. If you don’t already have a Remind account, create one using the phone number where you receive Remind texts. Make sure to enable push notifications from Remind on your phone.
On your computer: Turn on email notifications
Go to Remind.com on any computer. As above, if you don’t already have a Remind account, create one using the phone number where you receive Remind texts. Turn on email notifications for your account so you don’t miss any messages.
