I want notices sent as text message.

Cannot see where to add my phone anywhere on your application. How do I add phone number to receive notices by text?

Hi Dewayne,

If you have installed our Android application there would be no real use for SMS reminders, as you can have this as PUSH notifications. Either way, if you head to Todoist.com, top right corner, Settings, then choose Reminders.

From there you will be able to choose your default reminder, and enter your number for getting SMS reminders.

I am still unable to get a text mrssage notification.
I have tried your suggestion, but all I can get is an email notification which I do not want. I try to go to your website, but it goes
Right to my application. Not you website. Should
I remove and reinstall?

Please try heading to the website version from a desktop. You need to edit the Reminder section. Under Mobile Phone, there is Provider which you can try using International, your number +15417543010 for example, and 3 send from numbers, which you can also try the Canadian ones.

These options are not available on the Android app, and the app does not determine this feature from working. Again though, if you have the Android app installed, there is no need for SMS to be enabled. You can go to the same setting area and choose PUSH.
