ESPN Mobile Text Alerts



These are good for breaking news. And for that reason I keep it and don't cancel it.


BUT HOLY shite.


It has been terrible recently. I feel like I get 4 "alerts" a night about shite I, and what I would think 90% of the population don't give a shite about.

I don't care how many points Carmelo has. I don't care what women's teams made it to the final four etc etc.

re: ESPN Mobile Text Alerts


I finally cancelled for a different reason. They assumed I didn't follow sports. I would get texts telling me to watch the BCS National Championship game and shite.

I do. But it's much simpler to get a text rather than having to check twitter.especially when busy

re: ESPN Mobile Text Alerts


But how else would you know Mark Cuban said he would draft Greiner in the 2nd round?

Or that the uconn person said it'd be a sham for Greiner to attempt to play in the nBA?

ORR HOW WOULD YOU KNOW MARK CUBAN RESPONDED BY SAYING ITS TERRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICE TO NOT KEEP AN OPEN MIND.

I fricking hate ESPN too but keep the texts just in case.

re: ESPN Mobile Text Alerts


If you have a smart phone why would you even use text alerts? My alerts pop up on my status bar and scroll across, no sound or anything. If I'm interested I read if not it disappears.

Plus you can change the settings of what gets sent to you.

The Carmelo thing the last 2 nights have annoyed me but then again I liked that they sent me the Yu Darvish going for a perfect game msg so I guess can't have it both ways

re: ESPN Mobile Text Alerts


I noticed this too... I thought it was just me. It seems like I've gotten more of them lately and about stupid crap that I don't care about.

The Yu Darvish perfect game alert was about the only legit one.

They sent several about college basketball coaches getting hired and fired, a different one for every women's basketball team who made the final four, Carmelo scoring 50 points, another one about Carmelo scoring 40 points, and a bunch of other useless crap.

Yeah they are going way overboard. The fricked up thing is they won't let me change my settings. I click the link to edit my preferences and it just refreshes the page I was on.
