Receive MyAlerts on your mobile phone
You may not know it, but text messages can be sent to a cell phone by email. To do this, you first need to determine the email address for that phone or device. This is a necessary step if you want to receive MyAlerts as a text message.
The first part of the email address is the 10 digit phone number with area code (without spaces or dashes). The second part is based on the company providing the cell phone service:
Example: The phone number (555) 123-4567 on an AT&T cell phone would be entered as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some cell phone plans include free text messaging, while others charge fees. Check with your cell phone provider to see what plan you have.
