What is NoteToText?
NoteToText is a web application that allows you to send notes to yourself and others at times that you specify via text message and allows you to keep track of all of your notes, view past notes, set up recurring notes, and resend notes.
How does NoteToText work?
Schedule a note for a specific date and time and you (and others) will receive an email and a text message from yourself at the date and time that you specified.
Start by clicking on Send Note
on the sidebar.Note:
It is important to set your time zone in General Settings
so you receive your notes according to the time zone you are in. Default time zone is America/New York EST or GMT-05:00 (GMT-04:00 DST).
How do notes work?
Create a note for yourself and have it set to send now, 5 minutes from now, or even a week or longer from now and NoteToText will send an email once that time has come.
Upon setting or deleting a note, that note will be deducted from or added back to your total note allotment.
Once the note has been sent, it is permanently deducted from your total notes for the month.
Every month from your registration date or renew date, you will receive a set amount of notes according to the plan you have chosen.
Note: All notes remaining do not carry over and will expire on the renew date and reset according to the plan you have.
How long can my note be?
Notes can contain up to 160 characters.
Can I send a recurring note?
You can schedule a recurring note from every 5 minutes to every hour, to every few hours, to once a week, to every month, to every few months, to once a year.

Can I resend notes?
Once a note has been sent, it is put into your notes history
where you can always reschedule those exact notes for another date.
Can I see all of my notes?
A history of your notes
will always remain. However, you do have the ability to delete notes from your history if you no longer want them to appear.
How far into the future can I schedule a note?
You may schedule a note up to 1 year from the current date.
How can I get more notes?
Each month from your sign up date or your renew date, your notes will reset according to the plan you have.
If you have run out of notes, you can choose to upgrade to a plan that fits your needs on the subscription
page or you can buy more notes on the refills
Refills were meant to give you extra notes to get you through the month and will expire
upon your Renew Date

Depending on the plan you have, you can send other people text messages.
Can I assign a personal phone number to a note?
If you are subscribed to a plan and have purchased your own personal number or several, you will be able to assign a different number to each note.

The system that we purchase our phone numbers from is constantly renting out phone numbers, and from time to time, may run out. It is usually never permanent, as more numbers are purchased, or other companies are un-renting those numbers, so they become available again.
If you want a phone number from a specific state, we suggest you check everyday for a phone number listing. Hopefully within the week, a number becomes available.

I never received my note.
We sincerely apologize that this happened, but there could be several reasons this may have happened:
You scheduled the note at exactly the same time that it was set to go out and it may not be registering as a pending note in the system
The system hiccuped and is not seeing your note
You blocked our number or yours by sending the STOP command, thus preventing any further communication from our system (simply text START to resume communications)
The Renew Date did not reset my notes.
The Renew Date lets you know when you will receive new notes, but the timing is not always exactly at 12:00 AM.
It may take the system a few hours to actually update your notes on your Renew Date.
If you see no change of your notes on your Renew Date, please contact us.
I encountered a technical error.
Please contact us and let us know what you were doing and the page you were trying to get to.
