AT&T Text Alerts Turned OFF!

December 21st, 2018

UPDATE: 209-01-07
We have finally made contact with AT&T, however, we have yet to resolve the issue. We will update when we know more. In the interim, please use option 1 below to receive our alerts and sorry for the confusion.

AT&T/Cricket Text alerting was turned off at 10:00 AM EST today (12-21-2018). We are experiencing text alert delivery issues with AT&T. Their system is delaying our alerts and has been doing so since November 28th, 2018. We have tried to contact them numerous times via multiple channels to resolve the issue and they have yet to respond.

This is an issue that we experience every so often and are typically able to resolve fairly quickly with the mobile carriers. An issue with Verizon earlier this year was able to be resolved within 4 days. T-Mobile in the past contacted us because of our subscribers’ complaints.

Mobile carrier systems are closed and we have no control over them. They reserve the right to black-hole/delay our alerts at any time. Over the years we have continually evaluated systems to see if there was any way possible to circumvent the piggy-backing of other people’s system, but we are not aware of a single method that will work for us.

At this time, if you are an AT&T Wireless subscriber, it is suggested that you take one or both of the following courses of action…

  1. Use email to forward our alerts to your phone. Yes, it is possible to forward specific emails to your phone. Instructions for this can be found here in our Text Alerts Via Email Alerts Guide.
  2. Bring this issue to their attention letting them know that your NowInStock.net alerts are not being delivered. You can contact them here: Twitter, Facebook, or directly.

Fido.ca SMS Alerting Turned OFF

February 9th, 2017

UPDATE 2017-02-13: Fido.ca texting turned back ON. Please visit this page to ensure you have set up your Fido service. Send a text to 3436 with “Allow nowinstock.net” to ensure our messages are not blocked.

2017-02-09: Wireless carrier Fido.ca SMS alerting has been turned off. They are blocking our text alerts from going through. If you want Fido turned back on, you subscribers need to talk with Fido. The same thing happened with T-mobile and users spoke up. T-Mobile contacted us to resolve the issue. It works, you just need to let them know how you feel… https://twitter.com/Fidomobile


AOL.com Email Delivery Issues

February 3rd, 2017

To our users who use AOL for their email: Email alerts destined for aol.com, prior to 11:00 AM today, have been TURNED OFF as AOL continually delays our emails.

Option 1

We suggest you log in and change your email to another provider. Then turn on email alerting for your items in order to continue receiving our alerts in a timely manner. Gmail remains the most trust worthy provider.

Option 2

If you would like to ignore our above advice and try to continue receiving email from us to your aol.com email address, you will need to log in to your account and turn email alerting back on for each of your items. If you proceed with this method, there is clearly no guarantee on the delivery times.

Sorry for this inconvenience, however, once we reach a certain threshold with AOL, deliveries of emails tanks. Smaller queues to AOL seem to pass, but as they grow into the thousands issues arise.
