    Do you sign up to receive updates from websites as text messages on your cell phone?

    I am signed up for these on a few sites. I don't usually like getting too many text messages though because I only pay for 400 a month.

    I dont get any from websites but I do get them from the two sports that I love.

    I get notifications from the cricket, it tells me when the game starts, when a wicket is taken and who wins.

    The other is for AFL, tells me score updates at the end of each quarter.

    Nah I try to keep as many notifications off my phone as possible.

    I do use Opera and keep up with RSS Feeds if that still counts.

    The only notification I want sent to my phone is when my credit is running low. I'd be annoyed with stupid texts all the time.

    I'd love phone notification for some but unfortunately, mobile subscription is often not allowed for phones in FRance or isn't an option at the sites I go to (if it's a french phone company).

    footballs over so my eagles texts wont come through but when the world cup starts i'll probably add that one

    No, that would really bug me. I hate when my phone goes off and it's not a personal text, it's from the phone company with an offer or something. If it started going off for updates too then I'd go nuts.

    I can see the convenience but, not for me. I'm probably spending more time with my computer than my phone, anyway.

    I was going to get facebook updates on my phone but my provider wouldn't allow me too haha.

    I dont like them on the whole though...I'd rather just get texts from people.

    I receive texts for severe weather, and that is it. They are the only ones I really need. I like to stay up-to-date on if we have a tornado warning or what not. I used to receive alerts from my e-mail if I received a PM on GF, but I turned those off because GF doesn't work on my phone anymore.
