On responding, our system will log your preference and you will receive an SMS confirming your unsubscription. The SMS preference page within your Customer Control Panel will now start dispalying the new status.

Invalid / Unreachable Mobile Number Notification

A notification will be displayed on the Dashboard within your Control Panel, in case you have:

  • not provided a mobile number,

    OR

  • provided an invalid mobile number,

    OR

  • subscribed to SMS alerts and the previous 5 attempts by us to send SMSes to the mobile number have failed.

You can update the mobile number by clicking the Update number link in the notification panel.

Note
  • The mobile number can also be updated anytime from the Modify Customer Profile view within your Control Panel.

  • If your mobile number is valid and the non-delivery of SMSes was due to issues such as network coverage, phone being switched off, etc., you may submit the existing mobile number. The system will then make two more attempts to send SMSes to the mobile number.

    If those also fail, SMS alerts will be disabled for that mobile number and you need to contact our Support Team at http://helper4web.com/ to have the alerts re-enabled.
