Remind has always paid a fee for text messages sent and received; however, Verizon will begin
charging an additional fee meant for companies that send spam messages. Even though
Remind messages aren’t spam, Verizon will not make an exception for Remind messaging.
Remind is asking Verizon customers to voice their concerns by contacting Verizon customer
service at (800)922-0204 and through social media. Use #ReverseTheFee to Tweet @verizon
and let them know how beneficial Remind is to your classroom and that it is #NotSpam.
Continuing with Remind
Verizon customers will still be able to receive messages through the Remind app with a
smartphone. If Remind users do not already have the app, they will need to download the app
and enable push notifications from Remind on their phone. If they already have the app, they
may need to make sure the notifications are enabled to receive them. Customers without
smartphones can go to remind.com from a computer and turn on email notifications to receive
all notifications through email.
Please be sure to set your notifications through the app or email before January 28th to
avoid missing important messages!
