One Call Now's Text Alerts Notification Program
One Call Now sends important and informational text alerts for schools, churches, sports
teams, public safety agencies, and businesses. These notifications can be voice
phone calls, emails, and now, SMS Text messages to cell phones.
How it works
If your organization chooses to use SMS Text Messaging, they will send a voice message
to your cell phone telling you how to "opt-in." To receive text message notifications,
you must respond to this message by texting the word Alert
to 22300 (the One Call Now short code.)
When One Call Now receives this Alert text message, we
will "Opt-in" your cell phone to receive text alerts and send a confirmation
to your cell phone by text. If you are a member of more than one organization using
the One Call Now service, you will be "opted-in" for all groups that have your cell
number in their calling list. If your preference is to receive text messages for
only some, but not all, of these organizations, contact the organization's group
leader or One Call Now's support team.
You will receive this "opt-in" phone call only if your phone number is in a calling
list for an organization using the One Call Now service. If you do not respond by
sending the word Alert to One Call Now, you will not receive
any text messages from your organization via the One Call Now service.
How to Use Text Messaging
New to Texting? To send a text message, open up the "Menu" on your cell phone and
look for the "Messaging" option (this usually looks like an envelope.) Select "New
Text Message." Type in 22300 in the "To" field and type
the word Alert in the message field. Note: some cell phones
have you type your message first and enter whom you are sending it to second.
Receiving text messages is easy. When a message is received, your phone will notify
you. Just select to "view" the message. To view the message again, open up your
"Menu," select "Messaging" (usually an envelope) and select "Inbox." All the text
messages you have recently received will be in your "Inbox."
If you subscribe to a cell plan with text messaging, One Call Now text messages
will be included in your plan. If you do not have a text messaging option on your
cellular plan or you exceed your plan’s limit, standard text message charges will
be applied by your cellular provider to receive these messages.
How to Opt-Out
If you would like to stop receiving text messages, you can opt-out by texting the
word Stop to 22300 from your
cell phone. Text messages will be disabled to your number. (You can opt-in again
at any time by texting Alert to 22300.)
If you choose to Opt-out of text messaging, you will continue to receive voice phone
calls to your cell phone.
