Ok, just realized that, it was few days back (may be 10 days or so) when i saw the option to select the SMS Sender Gateway or Country or whatever (like from US or Canada)

But Now its gone.

We have sent a test through our new system and you should receive a message with the content:

"Todoist SMS reminders work! Remember if your task is due "today at 10am" Todoist will send a reminder 30 minutes before this deadline!"

Please confirm:
- Did you receive this message?
- If so, do reminders work now for you?


Best regards,
David

Haven't received anything yet.
But saw that, Setting page now doesn't gives out error.

You won't believe me but even Push Notifications aren't working for me :-/

Kamran,

Please let us know if you do not get the message, though I do not think it should take that long to show up.

Brendon.

Have you gone through the settings recently? And tried each send from number? There have been a few changes since our last reply.

I will pass this along again, and see what the status is. Most should be working now. I will get back to you with any new information.

Nope..
None of the SMS Gateway works for India,
My Number is Registered on Do Not Disturb service so this might not work for me.

That is confirmed, for that area, if you are on that list, these will not show up.

Yes, I can get my self removed, but need inputs from you as to which

Hi Hardik,

I have now consulted our SMS provider to check which service you should enable. Once I hear back from them, I'll let you know by replying to this thread with an update.

To be honest,
Even though am also Fully blocked for Airtel services..

I receive almost all important notifications from various categories like Banks, Cards, Shopping etc etc.

ToDoist have to whitelist itself to provide notifications even though the customer is active for DO NOT DISTURB.
