The Email-SMS gateway that Google Voice uses formats email addresses like this in the messages that it sends to you: 12125551212.12015550189.{some-random-string}@txt.voice.google.com The first phone number there is your own, the second is the other person in the conversation. The random string is just that, a bunch of letters, numbers, and punctuation with ...

This is a Google Calendar solution, and includes instructions on how to add reminder notifications, since the basic US Holiday calendar doesn't allow you to change Calendar-level notifications.

I don't know where you're located, but in my corner of the world, this is not unusual. If you wish to push text messages, you will need to sign up with an SMS service provider. You can reserve a short, 4-digit number for your services, which is expensive. Or you can reserve a keyword within a 4-digit number. The number is then shared among other services, ...

I don't know of a way to get it to send an SMS, but there is a solution if you have an Android phone. I have my Gmail set with a filter (in settings-filters) to set a label ("notifyinandroid") for certain senders, then I have the Gmail app on my phone set to only notify me when items arrive with that label. You could also do this for certain subjects. That ...

https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/45351?hl=en Google Calendar is a free product and Google doesn't charge you to receive notifications. Please keep in mind that your mobile service provider's standard rate for receiving text messages may apply. If you have any questions about the rate, please contact your service provider for more information.

IFTTT is great for stuff like this. The Date & Time channel is the one you're looking for.

You may want to investigate IF This Then That and maybe their recipe that allows you to automatically forward a e-mail message to a phone via SMS. This recipe may not fully work for you, depending on your needs, but this is a start. ifttt is truly a godsend when it comes to connecting different services.

From what I know, the only current way to do it is through your Google Voice administration. You can receive, send and reply from Google Voice and your text message would show up under your Google Voice number rather than your Gmail address. I prefere the Gmail interface for texting, but so far it seems as the only way to go.

The SMS Channel was apparently stopped a while back as I was facing the same problem and a mail from the help desk of Google had content informing that since no progress is happening from Labs to a revenue generating effort into mainstream, they are discontinuing it. So theres a chance that it might not be working for the same reason. Or, maybe because you ...

It is indeed true that Twitter can't send SMS in countries with a long code. Looks like there's an oversight in this system so that it's allowing SMS verification to be used even though it should require confirmation via incoming SMS. Twitter provides instructions at https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170409, but unfortunately those aren't of much use. ...

In the search box add in:sms to limit the results to just text messages: > 2125551212 in:sms The above will search for all text messages with the phone number (212) 555-1212. You can also add other Gmail like search terms, such as date limiters, e.g., before:2016-08-01 after:2016-06-15.

Twitter's help pages have some info on this: My email, phone number, or username is already in use How is my phone number associated with another Twitter account? but their only real answer for your question is this part: Still need help? Contact Support. I suggest you do that. Alternatively, ask your phone service provider to change your new phone ...

My solution is to use a temporary phone number to get past that screen. I have done it and it solved it when I had the problem you describe. I bought a programmatic phone number from 46elks.com. It's just €1 for one month (for the Swedish cell phone numbers. US phone numbers are €3 and I don't think they have Canadian phone numbers). With the phone number ...

I couldn't find the answer to this anywhere, so here you go! Go to https://voice.google.com Navigate to the section you want to archive (calls, messages, or voicemails) Click on the circle icon next to the first message you want to archive. Notice that when you hover over the item, the circle changes to a gray checkmark. When you click it, it changes to a ...

I'm afraid, no, there's not a way to do that with just Gmail filters. There's no option to remove formatting or to just send the plain-text version. (Normally I'd recommend my favorite interconnectivity tool, IFTTT, but I'm not sure that it will remove HTML formatting either. I'll need to do some testing.)

If you have an Android phone, you should be able to get something done with If This Then That. Start with the Google Contacts channel and the New contact added to group trigger. For your action, you'll want the Android SMS Channel and the send an SMS trigger. Simply use the {{PhoneNumber}} ingredient from your trigger as the Phone number in the action, ...

Do you have your phone number associated with your account? I used the mobile reminder feature in four different European countries, I'd be surprised if it wouldn't work for Canada. Your screenshot is from the settings for one specific calendar, you need to go to your general calendar settings to associated the phone number: -> google.com/calendar -> ...

What's your carrier? Most have an email-to-SMS bridge. Verizon Wireless, for instance, uses {phonenumber}@vtext.com (e.g., 2128675309@vtext.com). Here's a list for carriers in the U.S. but I don't know how up-to-date it is. Further, many carriers have web forms to allow sending arbitrary text to any customer, so you could just copy-paste the message in the ...

There are several services available online that will convert e-mails to SMS (usually for a small fee). Gmail allows you to add a forwarding address, as long as you can verify that you own the account by clicking the link in the verification mail. Once added, you can create a filter that will forward only selected e-mails, such as only e-mails coming from a ...

In the app settings, go to "Sync and notifications" Under the Notifications heading, there's an option for "Receive text messages" Select "Via the Google Voice app" That worked for me.

pinger textfree web allows you to do this, at least, to start a new Gmail account (viz. accept text messages on a local number). I haven't tried to automate anything. They use bot-tests like everybody else. But if you want API-level access there is a company that makes a famously accessible (albeit paid if you want more than a few requests per hour) API ...
