Join a class or school by texting 81010

For all Remind users.

One of the easiest ways to join a Remind school or class is by texting the school or class @code to 81010. This article will walk you through how to do so on either an iOS or Android mobile. 

This article contains the following sections: 


Note

Only U.S. participants can use the short code. If you're in Canada or if the short code isn't working for you, you can text the class code to (502) 694-1142 instead.


iOS

  1. Get the school or class code from your administrator or the class owner. Administrators or class owners can find that code on the top left of their Remind dashboard under the school or class name (it starts with an @ symbol). mceclip0.png
  2. Text the @code of the class or school you want to join to 81010. You'll immediately receive a text confirming you've joined the school or class.                mceclip5.png

FAQ

  • Does 81010 cost anything?

When you text a class code to 81010, some carriers will automatically respond with an alert about additional costs. Although it does cost more to use some short codes, 81010 does not cost more than other messages on Remind.

Standard text messaging rates may apply to Remind messages, based on each individual's cell phone carrier and text messaging plan, but there are no added costs. In other words, getting a Remind message via text is exactly the same as getting a text message from anyone else.

  • Do people get messages from 81010?

When participants sign up for Remind through 81010, they'll be asked to complete their account with additional information (e.g., their full names or roles at school). However, announcements and messages will be sent from randomly assigned phone numbers, not 81010
