Verizon reminder arrives as an "Emergency" message.

I tried the text messaging feature with my Verizon phone. It arrives with a "New Emergency Message" cover message (looks like I am getting some kind of public awareness broadcast or something), but it isn't an emergency.

Hmm, any other Verizon users on here having the same problem?

Thanks for reporting this - we'll see if we can figure out what's happening.

As a test, I created a task to with a reminder sent to my Verizon phone, and sure enough it is preceded by an *Emergency*

I've made a change to the messages that are sent out.

Can someone using Verizon confirm whether this has stopped the reminders from being sent out as "emergency messages"?

Yes, this is fixed. Now the reminders arrive showing they are from "remind@rmilk.com".

Next request -- can we set the reminders so that they don't arrive at 12:00 AM, (which wakes me from a stupified coma wondering who is text-messaging me in the middle of the night)?

When you have reminders set to "remind me... on the day the task is due" it would be nice to be able to specify a time (7:00 AM for example).

willswords, this feature is on our to-do list :)

We appreciate that midnight might not be the best time to receive text messages :)
