I am a new user. Is there a way to set a text alert to my use phone when the phone with the followmee app exits or enters an established fence? Thanks.

Hello,

You might wish to look at the map for the phone your tracking and on the bottom of the map area select "Geo Fence". From there you should be able to setup entry and exit notifications.

Hope this helps.

AFIK you only get email notification, not text message. brookerf was asking about text message notifications.

Hello,

I have not tried this but in place of an email address why not use 10-digit-phone-number@carrier-sms-address? xxx-xxx-xxxxx@mms.att.net for example

"Text message is not currently available"
Does this mean, it will be available soon?

mteicher might be on to something - that would be a email to SMS message.

Here are a number of the SMS gateways for email.

I am told there might be somewhat of a delay. But if anyone tests this I am sure others would be interested in your findings.

You can easily set up an IFTTT recipe for e-mail to SMS forwarding.
