Text me when there's a new GC in my area

Recommended Posts

I wish there was a way for premium members to sign up to have a text sent to me when there is a new geocache in my area. If this has already been discussed, I aplogize for the duplication.

There probably is. Most cellular carriers have a means to text via email. eg. Verizon is cell number@vtext.com. If you put the address in for your notification email address you will receive the notification as a text.

Thank you! You guys are awesome! In the 15 minutes since I asked the question I have my answer and am all set up.

 

Yet another good reason to be a premium member.

For the Geocaching Groundspeak Android App, I can't see why they can't have push notifications. I mean there are tonnes of other apps that do this. Gets to the point where it is annoying sometimes.

But its certainly doable.

I have noticed that the sending to my @vtext is faster than @gmail

 

I tested this when I was only @gmail and a verizon cacher was getting alrets faster than me!

 

I am guessing that SMS is much less busier than gmail!

Did you try the address on the linked Wikipedia page? That list says the address should be number@orange.net.

This has turned into a very nice thread for helping community members set up their instant notifications to forward onto their cellphones as text messages. Since there isn't a clear feature request articulated, I am moving this topic to the "How do I?" forum.

Is there a way to get notification email to more then one email-adress? We have wrot more then one adress but still only get notification to the Primery emailadress. Something we can do about it?

Set up two separate notifications. Everything would be identical except the email (phone) to send it to.

 

Or send the notification to a regular email (gmail?) and have that service forward the message to as many other emails as you want.

Tried that a-team its not playing ball

If your phone also supports MMS as well as SMS, you could send a message from your phone to your regular email address. Do this using your messaging app, not the email app. When you receive the message at your regular email, you can look at the From address to get your phone's email address.
