    Default Google Calendar SMS Alerts Don't Work with the iPhone???
    I've been using Google Calendar's SMS reminders for a while now, but since I've switched to the iPhone, they stopped coming through. I put my SIM in my Sharp 903SH and it works fine there, so is my iPhone blocking these? I went into Google Calendar to try to re-verify my mobile number, but the verification text message doesn't come through either.

    What give? This is extremely annoying, as I rely quite a bit on those reminders.

    Someone in the US can try to contact Google about this. I did, but they say that it has something to do with the provider (Rogers here in Canada), and since the iPhone isn't officially out here, they can't help me. If somebody on AT&T can contact them, maybe they'll be more of a help.

    What's you and your brother's set up? Unlocked 1.1.1 or stock 1.1.1? Mine is an unlocked one....so it might differ? I dunno.

    Huh, that's weird. Same carriers? Maybe it's a carrier issue too...

    same carriers, the only difference between our phones is that my sim is very old v1 i think and his is brand new one of the 128k ones, but i dont see how it cuda been that cause i used 2 get them perfectly on my old number. Goin on contract today nd i get a new sim with that so i can test out that theory

    The only other differnces is that i unlocked at 1.0.2 then virginized then upgraded then unlocked, he never unlocked on 1.0.2. Don't think this shud make a difference.

    I ckeckd the sender and its says he's recieving it from +422a (the a is no mistake) whereas I I'm receiving it from +4454?!?

    So his came as a 1.0.2 or a 1.1.1? Mine was like yours, unlocked 1.0.2, virginized, and upgraded to 1.1.1.

    Huh. How 'bout that. Maybe it does have something to do with the SIMs...I am using a 64K one afterall. Maybe I'll find somebody with a 128K one and try it lol
