Hi Gene,

We have reported this to our developer already and they're looking into it. We'll update you when we have some news or have a fix ready. Sorry for the inconvenience.

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,

I received your test SMS.
I can receive test SMS from the settings menu.
Still not receiving SMS from actually tasks.

Thank you, I will pass this along and we hope to find the cause.

On the screen, the little clock icon that appears when a reminder is set, does go away at the correct time that was set for the SMS reminder.

I have the exact same problem.
