Effective January 28th, Verizon customers will no longer receive SMS texts from Remind, the platform BGCWC uses for text alerts. This is because Verizon has placed a fee on Remind texts labeling them as ‘spam’, making it unable for Remind to continue sending texts to Verizon customers.
If you have a smartphone and have the Remind App, you will still continue to get alerts from BGCWC as usual, via phone notification. Verizon customers just won’t be able to receive alerts as SMS texts.
If you are a Verizon customer who has currently been receiving alerts as SMS texts, you have a smartphone, and want to continue getting updates from BGCWC via phone notification, download the Remind App.
If you are a Verizon customer who does not have a smartphone, and still want to be updated on what we are doing, sign up for our newsletter.
Please understand that this is beyond my control. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email and I will try to answer any questions you may have and I will try to help you any way I can.
