Remind 101----UPDATE!

Well....I switched phone cell carriers and upgraded my phone. After the switch, I could no longer log into my Remind 101 account. I had to set up a new account. UGH! Sorry for this inconvenience. Please consider subscribing to my NEW account. It is a quick way for me to send out reminders.
