On January 15, 2019 Verizon stated that they would be charging a “spam” fee for texts sent from Remind. With this fee Remind’s CEO Brian Gray said, “As a startup company that’s in the education space, there’s no way that we can support that incremental cost” according to USA TODAY and Ben Tobin.

According to arstechnica and Jon Brodkin Remind said, “It’s service’s text message notifications will stop working on the Verizon network on January 28, unless Verizon changes courses.”

In recent research it’s been discovered that around 7 million students, teachers, and parents use Remind. We asked a few of our students that have Verizon how it would affect their productivity in school.

Sophomore Kevin Vargas said, “It will effect my school work because I might miss something and for ASB, I won’t know about events.”

Another student who doesn’t have Verizon, freshman Randy Salazar feels his peers who do have Verizon will be greatly affected: “I believe it is gonna affect them in a big way because they won’t be able to see the homework or assignments teachers send out.” Many people are asking Verizon to reverse the fee but no information has been released about a resolution.
