I have fixed most of the broken numbers (some I had with AT&T should have been Verizon etc.). Also, this will work for many places around the world. To see the list you can click here to see if your cell company is one I can reach.

90% of you have joined correctly and are showing up and will get the test text tomorrow afternoon. The other 10% are still showing as “request sent”. Some are showing up, I think, on the text “wall” as it seems you have clicked the link, not just texted back the word    YES

So, if you DO NOT see this below on your phone, please send me your number again and your provider to:

The below will be the first text.

I want to add you as a friend.
Reply YES to accept, NO to decline.
Msg & Data Rates may apply.

Once you text back YES you should get another text that says:

We are now friends, Thanks!
Msg & data rates may apply. Txt Stop to block

If you do not get the 2nd one, you have not joined. Do NOT click the link and then type YES. You must TEXT back the word YES to join and be on the bulk list.

Here is what my phone looked like when I joined it.

Thanks everyone for your help and patience while I tweak this to work right. I have never waited more than 1-2 min for a text when testing to my phone and that is one of my main goals with this that you get the info FAST. Tomorrow’s test will include the TIME I am sending the text so you will be able to compare how long it took. Please post on the blog how we did. Again my warm thanks as I want this to work and work well! – René


EDIT: Did a test about the SFO-MCI run today and I, who have Sprint, never got it. Some got it 6x times. Sprint users, did you get the text today? How many times? Did everyone else get it 6x times? Thanks – Rene

  1. Great thanks Rene. I missed out on SFO-BWI, need a MR or 3 on DL before the end of the year.

  2. @Avi – txs – I got it ZERO ( I hate sprint) .. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  3. I didn’t receive the SFO-MCI text at all (ATT). Not sure there are any perfect services though… the free system you used before always worked for me but was bad for others. This one probably has similar issues. But whatever you work out is fine with me — it’s YOUR effort and money going in to this so how can I not be appreciative?
