Update from Remind

We’re thrilled to share the news: Thanks to you, Verizon has informed us that they will #ReverseTheFee. As a result, we can continue to offer text notifications as part of the Remind service. There will be no service disruption for Verizon Wireless customers.

We’re grateful to Verizon for making a commitment to support accessible communication for all Remind users. You can read more here: https://www.remind.com/blog/verizon-update.

Thank you so much for your patience and support—this wouldn’t be possible without you. 

The Remind team


Note from “Remind”

We’re sorry to write with disappointing news. Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for us to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. Please read on for all the important details—we promise to keep this as short as we can.

What’s happening?
To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that our users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network. Your Remind messages aren’t spam, but our efforts to resolve the issue with Verizon haven’t been successful. 

As a result, the Verizon fee will increase our costs of providing text messaging by 11X—pushing our annual costs into the millions of dollars. This isn’t financially feasible for us to support, and it’s forcing us to end Remind text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan with Verizon.

How will this affect you?
Beginning January 28, 2019, the people who normally get PLA Remind messages as texts will no longer receive these messages if they have Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. 

What can you do?
To continue receiving your messages, we ask that you download the mobile app or enable email notifications—both of which are free of charge. Our team’s also working hard on a solution that allows the PLA to continue to use Remind by text, and we’ll share more details before January 28.

In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting to make sure users have access to effective communication. To do this, we need your help: If using Remind has made a positive impact in your classroom, at your school, or anywhere between, please ask Verizon to reverse the fee here: www.remind.com/verizon-fee

We’re very grateful for your support, and we’ll be in touch soon with an update.
