Google Calendar SMS alerts now functional in South Africa!
Thursday, November 09, 2006
Google have got SMS alerts for their Calendar working in South Africa- what this means is that you can now receive alerts of events on your primary calendar by SMS- and it's free. To activate, log in to Google Calendar, go to 'settings' and then click the 'notifications' tab. Towards the bottom of the page is the cell phone notification setup. Select country, service provider, enter your number, and then when you receive the confirmation message enter your code. Unfortunately (on MTN at least) the advanced features (add event, query etc.) aren't available.
So even if you're running an old-school feature-free phone like my 1100, your online calendar can keep you on schedule.
UPDATE - I've posted some tips for using alerts.
