What's happening

Starting Monday, January 28, educators, students, and parents will no longer receive Remind text messages if they have wireless plans with Rogers, Bell, or any of their subsidiaries.

If you’re an educator: People who normally get your Remind messages as texts may no longer receive them.

If you’re a parent or student with Rogers or Bell: You’ll no longer receive Remind text messages. Read on for how to change your notifications to keep getting messages.

Why the Rogers and Bell fees affect text messaging on Remind

To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that users receive or send. Now, Rogers and Bell are charging us additional fees intended for companies that send spam over their networks.

Remind messages aren’t spam, but that hasn’t helped us resolve the issue with Rogers and Bell. Their fees are increasing our cost of supporting SMS in Canada to at least 25X our current cost—forcing us to end Remind text messaging for everyone on the Rogers and Bell networks.
