Unsupported mobile carrier: At this time, SCG Alerts is supported by major mobile phone carriers and most others. US Cellular currently does not support sending text messages longer than 160 characters from company "short codes" such as 69516. We are continually looking for ways to enhance SCG Alerts and anticipate adding more mobile carriers in the future.
Text messaging blocked: If your mobile carrier is supported, you may have a setting on your mobile phone's account that is blocking incoming text messages. Please contact your mobile provider to ensure that text messaging is enabled.
