Remind Update

Dear Auburn School,

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.

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, if you have VERIZON WIRELESS as your phone carrier, you will NO LONGER receive Remind messages as texts.

What can you do?

If you have Verizon as a cell service carrier, please download the mobile Remind app or enable email notifications – both free of charge – to ensure you continue to receive important messages from school.
