Wrong Info on Website??

waleed.ahmed says:

I thought I would point out what I think is misleading info on the website regarding SMS reminders. It says that O2 in the UK is supported by RTM. I have just spoken to O2 and they say that they dont. I havent been receiving SMS reminders. I almost paid for the pro version, as I feel the iPhone app is fantastic. Shame about the O2 incompatibility...

Pleas search the forums - O2 does work with RTM.

Thanks for that info. The fact is I tried searching for "SMS reminders" on the forums but nothing came up. I made 5 long calls to O2 support and had no joy. So I had thought I had covered all ground. I stand corrected. That link had the answer. Thanks a million. Works well. Just one question though- am I paying extra to receive SMS reminders on O2, UK? Thanks in anticipation.

No not free - must be something o2 impliment - I turned my SMS remindes off and rely on email notifications. These are better anyhow as the 140 char limitation on sms often cuts of my task text.

What I used to do is subscribe to my RTM iCal events feed in Google calendar, and then set the default notification for that calendar to send an SMS. Not ideal if you are often changing the times of tasks, as Google doesn't always refresh the calendar as much as you'd like, but at least you'll get SMS reminders for free.
