How do I enable Text Notifications?

Recommended Posts

I just got my first Premium Membership a little over a week ago and now I am trying to figure out how to get text notifications for new Geocaches. I've heard other Geocachers talking about it and stuff but I cannot seem to figure out how to do it! Also, I have email notifications enabled for new Geocaches in the area, but I cannot seem to be able to figure out the mobile notification part. :blink: Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :)

They are email notifications...not in-app notifications.

To clarify; go to http://www.geocaching.com/notify/ Where ytou can set up notification to email TO get those to your phone, you can set up an email to text. You will need to look it up for your provider but it will be something like phonenumbemessage@phonecompany.com You can also download GMAIL or other accounts to Android and Iphone as well. That's what a lot of people I know do.

You can. Most (all?) cell providers have what's called an email-to-SMS service. It will receive an email, convert it to a text message, then send it to your phone. If you Google your cell provider and "email to sms", you should be able to find out how their email-to-SMS addresses are set up (ie. [phonenumber]@[provider].com, etc.). Then you need to create new notifications on Geocaching.com and use that address as the "email" address.
