Troubleshooting

Q. I'm not getting a validation code, or not receiving messages...what am I doing wrong?

A. If you or any of your members are not receiving messages, you'll want to call your cell phone carrier and ask them to enable short code SMS messaging on your phone. Notify the person that you are trying to receive messages from 84483.
