Five Uses For Text Messaging If You're Over 15 [Part 1]

Five Uses For Text Messaging
If You're Over 15
(Or Even If You're Not)

(1) Set and Deliver Reminders

Backpack is a free, personal organizer service. You can sign up, make to-do lists, write notes to yourself, cross-link pages, and decide who can see what. Nothing to install: you can use it from any computer with a browser.

You can even set reminders, and get them sent to you as email. Or, you can send
them as text message to a phone.

Step-by-step:

  • Go to <http://backpackit.com> and sign up for a free account
  • Click on "Settings" (along the top)
  • look for "Send Backpack reminders via..."
  • check [Mobile phone]
  • type in your phone number, 7205551212 and select "TMobile USA" from the menu of carriers

You're done!

Any reminder you set will go to your phone as a text message.

Try it out.

In Backpack, click on "Reminders" (up along the top), and type in

+1 Test reminder

which will send you a reminder in about a minute.

After you've seen it work, start entering reminders for things that you want reminding of, even if when you're not near your computer.
