    Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee that makes it impossible for us to continue supporting text messaging on its network. As a result, we’re forced to shut off the free Remind text messaging service for everyone who who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier beginning January 28.

    To minimize service disruptions on the 28th, you can find instructions for enabling smartphone or email notifications here: How to change my message notifications

    Don't worry, you will not be charged to use Remind through the app or your email!

    Download the free Remind app on the iOS App Store, on Google Play, or at Make sure to enable push notifications from Remind on your phone.
