Hello Cyril,

Please make sure your phone number is entered correctly incl. your country code in the following format: +33123456789

If it is, please go to Settings -> Reminders, use the "Edit" option next to your number and while in edit mode, choose a different outgoing host (number to send from). There are 3 hosts you can choose from - 1 US host and 2 Canadian hosts, please try each of them and use the "Send a test" option through each host.


Best regards,
David

Hi,

Great, it now does work properly.

Is that a free service ?

Best regards.

Cyril,

SMS reminders are "free" in a sense that we don't charge anything for each message, but this feature is available only on a Todoist Premium account so it's a part of the paid Todoist version.


Best regards,
David

Hi,

I jump in... Does anyone know wether our french operators do charge anything for receiving a SMS from the USA?

Cyril, do you have any feedback?

Thanks,
Merci,
Stefan

I live in France and i use the SMS reminder a lot.
I'm with SFR.
They don't charge extra, actually, i don't see why they would. They can't charge you for receiving a text message, wherever it's coming from.
Depending on your contract they charge extra for sending to foreign countries but not for receiving.
