How to get SMS Text Message Notifications?

Recommended Posts

I currently have notifications set to send Newly Published alerts to my home email.  However, by the time I check it its often too late to try to go for FTF's.  I tried creating a SMS email address from my cell phone number that would change my phone number into an email address (For Verizon users its your cell phone number + @vtext.com).  I added it into my notification settings and I got a text message "email" from geocaching right away.  The problem is that it wants to verify this email address?  I don't know how to verify it since its not a real email address.  When I try to click on the link in my text, it just sends me to the geocaching website.  I thought it might work without it being verified but it doesn't seem to.  Any suggestions??  Thanks for any help and ideas!!

HA!!!  Thanks to some old posts about this subject, I figured it out!!  Extra special thanks to bobandpatty who figured out that if you use vzwpix.com instead, the verification link will work!  Worked like a charm!
