I was getting ready for work this morning at home and at 7:21 a.m. my phone gets a text message with today's commitment news. Great way to kick off the work day.
Right now we have 87 members signed up for text alerts, but we have a lot more that are eligible to receive them on this site so if you haven't taken advantage of signing up for alerts, I encourage you to do so. This morning is one example of how valuable they are in staying on top of the news when you are away from a computer.
If you are a monthly, I'm going to make my pitch again to upgrade. Not only do you save money, but it also helps the site out. The more subscribers, especially annual subscribers we have here, the better we can plan, budget and re-invest into the site in writers like Jeff Rice who we were able to bring on board back in the spring thanks to everyone's support of the site.

Here's a screen shot of what it looks like on your phone.
I was an hour into work and loved it.
Shameless plug Pat! Haha. Simple feature but really excellent

I thought I'd taken care of this but guess I forgot to check the last box... oh well. Think I fixed it now.
"We want the warriors"
First things first ... it's great to also see that Wisconsin earned a decommitment last night!
I'll point out that if you have an iPhone you already have a message and data plan. The text alerts are then free for you. If you are already paying for the annual subscription it doesn't make sense not to have the feature especially when it FREE!
It's also helpful when I get the S-Zone alert ... I can plan my microbreak accordingly.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
The only problem is I was literally woken up by the text message alert at 5:21 AM PST. LOL.

I just looked at your account and everything looks good.
There are plans to add the ability to set specific times you want to receive alerts in your user options.
i signed up last week but still not texts. what can we do to test this in my phone.
I just sent you a PM to get more info.
From 87, the site is up to 111 text alert users. 7th in the network right now. LSU (133) and Tennessee (137) are the next two sites to pass.
