Receive Free SMS Alerts from Google Calendar

PLEASE NOTE THAT GOOGLE HAS REMOVED THIS FEATURE SO ITS NOW USELESS TO GO THROUGH THE POST BELOW

Yes! Now you can receive your Google Calendar reminders on your SMS as well, for Free. There is nothing hard in doing that, believe me.

Setup your Mobile Phone with Google Calendar in easy steps:

1. Click on the Settings and choose Mobile Setup

2. Choose your Country, and put your Phone Number there in the international format e.g. +92XXXXXXXXXX and click on Send Verification Code button.

If your mobile network has been supported by Google, you will receive an SMS on your mobile phone with the verification code.

Note: Please don’t rely (not reply) on the Supported mobile providers list as provided by Google. Do put your mobile number and click on Send Verification Code to check if your provider is supported by Google or not, as it’s being observed that Google dont show all the Providers in the list, but still it supports them. If not, then do check it frequently for Google to start supporting your network.

3. After successfully receiving the code, put your verification code and click on Finish setup.

This is it. Now start using your Google Calendar, and while putting your reminders on your calendar, select the SMS option over there, and start receiving the SMS.

  1. In India, we pay, I am sure. While setting up this feature, Google warns `charges as per your service provider’. This could be country specific.

  2. Fido Canada doesn’t allow sms from google anymore, saying that was for avoiding spams. Could you tell me who is your provider? I really miss this feature.

  3. Of course Google pays. I’ve been using Google Calendar more than a month, and am also receiving Free SMS on my mobile for alerts, reminders etc., without even paying a penny. Its absolutely free.
