Starting January 28th, Verizon customers will no longer be able to receive text messages from Remind. They will, however, still be able to use the Remind app or website to communicate.
If you have Verizon, here is what you can do:
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.
If you want to keep receiving Remind texts, they have asked that you contact Verizon to advocate for this tool: www.remind.com/verizon-fee
More information about this change is on the Remind website.
