REMIND/VERIZON UPDATES

As many of you know, Verizon shared that they are planning to impose a fee on Remind that would make it impossible to continue supporting text notifications as part of Remind’s free service. Remind is trying to work with Verizon to get them to reverse the fee, but for the time being you will need to download the Remind app and turn on notifications. Beginning January 28th, you will not receive Reminds via text message, they will be delivered through the app. You can also follow Mr. Rex(@MrRexMusic), Mrs. Astey(@MrsAsteyBand), and Mr. Hanna(@MrHannaMusic) on Twitter for band updates.

Remind has encouraged users to please keep making your voice heard by asking Verizon to #ReverseTheFee and #PutItInWriting, both at 1-800-922-0204 and on social media.
