Can I please get a test text alert to make sure I have done the update correctly? Thanks!
I can't send one to an individual user, but in looking at your account it looks like everything is fine and you should be good to go when we send the next one.
Your team. All the time.
Thanks for all your help/feedback on these alerts. They are now live on the entire network. My original post from a few days ago is at the top of the thread, but Shannon has a more detailed and updated post that I've copied most of below.
Here's how you get started and begin receiving text alerts from 247Sports (665-55).
If you are an active ANNUAL subscriber, get text alerts by the following steps:
#1. Click on the "My Account" link located at the top right in your home site horizontal navigation strip.
#2. Enter your "username" and "password" to verify your account.
#3. Click on the "Alerts" link located in the horizontal nav under "Settings"
#4. Enter your active mobile number where you would like to receive the text alerts.
#5. Check the box indicating which specific alerts you wish to receive.
#6. Click "Save"
If you are an active MONTHLY subscriber, you can get text alerts by the following steps:
#1. First, you will need to UPGRADE your monthly subscription to an ANNUAL subscription.
#2. Click the "Upgrade" link/tab located at the top right of the site. The upgrade box is marked in green.
#3. Upgrade your account.
#4. After completing the Upgrade process, you will need to sign up for text alerts.
#5. Click on the "Alerts" link located in the horizontal nav under "Settings" (Located in the "My Accounts" section: See above)
#6. Enter your active mobile number where you would like to receive text alerts.
#7. Check the box indicating which specific alerts you wish to receive.
#8. Click "Save"
Remember, Text Alerts are available only to Annual subscribers.
NEXT PHASE: Text Alerts 2.0
Although Text Alerts are only available to ANNUAL members, in the future 247Sports members will be able to earn free text alert services through various methods. Users can get free text alerts by consecutive months of service (applicable to monthly members), user ratings and reputations, posting on the message boards and referring members to BOL. All of these services are expected to be added once our engineers complete the rewrite of the user management and reputations system which is expected during Q1 2013.
TEXT ALERT PROTOCOL: What to expect.
Major Breaking News
-New Hire in athletics
-New Starter Named
-Select recruiting news items (cancels visit, etc.)
-Gametime, TV announced
-Next game info (hoops, baseball tournaments)
-Letter of Intents (signing day- every 4-5 confirmed)
-Site announcements (new staff member, etc.)
-Because of mobile site, you can use links to articles to supplement news items or for a hot story. Use this selectively.
-Good to link things like VIP room, war room, etc.

Bumping this for all the new folks.
FYI ... I just checked my 'Alert' settings and the checkmarks got unchecked somehow. I checked them back and clicked 'Save'. Then, looked and the checkmarks were still not there. I checked them again and hit 'save', and it looks like they are there now. I think I read a post somewhere that several annual subscribers weren't signed up for 'Alerts'. Maybe, there's a bug or something?

Same thing happened to me. I received the test text but none since. Have any been sent out?
None sent out since. It is a display bug that the box doesn't appear checked when you return to the page.
I think we'll send out an alert in the next couple days. Ill post in here when I do so folks will know and can determine of it worked properly.
Just got the text on the TE commit.
Yup. Just sent one.
I didn't receive it. Any suggestions?
I didn't receive any text either.
There are many signatures in the world....this one is mine!
Did you follow the steps to sign up for them? If so, send me your phone number and I'll try and enter it myself.
Kevin I sent you a pm. Thanks
I sent you one as well.
Yup. Sent you a question via PM.
I think I just upgraded and setup my text stuff. Hooray for saving money!
Don't forget to sign up for text alerts if you are an annual subscriber. Going to be crazy from here until NSD.
Bump per Atomic's request. I'll pin.
Dang didn't get the text
I'm still not getting them either even though I get text alerts from several other that are sent the same way
