  5. This from Customer Care for the “Remind” service that educators use:
    1. Beginning Jan. 28th, Verizon customers who receive “Remind” messages as texts will no longer receive these messages. 
    2. What can you do?
      To make sure people in your classes continue receiving your messages, ask them to download the mobile app or enable email notifications—both of which are free of charge. Our team’s also working hard on a solution that allows your classes to continue to use Remind by text, and we’ll share more details with you before January 28.

      In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting to make sure educators, students, and parents have access to effective communication. To do this, we need your help: If using Remind has made a positive impact in your classroom, at your school, or anywhere in between, please ask Verizon to reverse the fee here:
