Hi All

I have set up my google calendar to send SMS alerts to my Vodafone phone.

Google states that these are free, but someone mentioned that Vodafone charge 80 cents to recieve a txt from overseas.

I contacted Vodafone and they couldn't tell me if they going to charge  for txts from Google.

Does anybody out there know if I have to pay for my Google txt alerts?

Thanks Paul.

When I originally set mine up a while ago I noted it was free, and confirmed there were no deductions on my balance after recieving one.. but that was some time ago, so it could have changed (i hope not, or I may have been unknowingley paying for them!)

IIt was free for a while - problems with their billing? The official word is that it will cost you $0.20 per SMS received.

I've been running Google SMS notifications for months without charge on VF.  I'd expect them to moan about it and charge if the volume was sufficient but just how many meetings would you need to have to warrant this.

BTW this also goes for Twitter SMS alerts, I get heaps but never a charge from VF.
