Due to various happenings, I temporarily deactivated my Facebook account several weeks ago. However, today I got a message from (326) 651-00 reading "[Friend's name] shared [not a friend's name, someone I don't even know] post. https://fb.com/[various characters]. Reply with your comment or "like"." I did not open the link... [more inside]
Both Messages and Mail for the Apple Watch have customizable lists of default replies that you can use to insta-reply to incoming messages. Especially for texting, I'm finding that the pre-provided replies beyond "okay" are pretty useless. What are better, handier ideas for a useful quick pre-written text message? [more inside]

Can you recommend a service that will let me broadcast SMS notifications to all staff in an emergency? I am assuming it would be an SMS marketing service, but if there are other options I'd love to hear them. The main feature I need is that it is easy and fast to send out a notification in an emergency. [more inside]

Need recommendations for quality services (or Android apps) that allow me to dictate and send text messages for no more than a few dollars a month ($7-$8 max). Voice Assist came with my bluetooth speakerphone but it didn't work very well. Thanks. [more inside]
Our employer has started a requirement that people sign in and out on a white board when leaving the building. It's not *that* big a deal, but it's kind of a hassle because of how we're set up. It got me wondering if there's a way to do this electronically. The ideal solution would be that I send a text about where I'm going. That text then shows up on a website, along with a time stamp. I would then send another text when I return. Is there such a thing?

Ever since I was pointed towards Umbrella Today I've yet to be caught out in the rain without an umbrella. I'd quite like to find other free services that automatically send a text message alert. It can be about whatever, doesn't have to be weather related at all. I live in Providence, Rhode Island.

I'm looking for an online system that allows us to set up a number that people can sms text to from their cell/mobile phones. It needs to work in the USA, and ideally also support RSS feeds of the messages as they come in - or some similar feed - so we can extract the received texts. Failing the live feed, we could make do with an Inbox system and periodically scrape or manually extract the messages out. Also being able to reply to the incoming messages is a bonus but not essential.

I get spam text messages from Us Weekly magazine on my phone that I guarantee I did not sign up for. T-Mobile won't block messages from the number they come from. How do I get myself off the list?

As a follow-up to this question, I'm looking for an online application that will let me set up a calendar and will email me daily reminders of the day's events. I need to do this online, because I move around a lot and am constantly using different PCs (so an Outlook/Eudora/Etc. solution won't work). I would like to be able to get a reminder the night before and one the morning-of. Google suggests there are several such services. Are there any really good ones? Bonus: Has anyone invented one that will phone you or leave your a text message?
