This means you can't take advantage of a text alert service through Exede, since you need a cell phone to be able to text...so you will have to stick to more traditional methods.   everything offered in the new text alert feature can still be done by calling Exede or online.
details of what text alerts involve:  https://myesvt.exede.net/

Lorriel, the eSVT app has been retired and is no longer available. MyExede Dashboard is still available, along with Easy Chat messenger available through Facebook.

Oh, thanks!  I never even knew that there WAS an eSVT app.  I have always just used the Dashboard...Just signed up for the cellphone alerts and they are GREAT.  Much more convenient for me than a phone call to exede or even the dashboard.

Good to hear that you like it! I've seen feedback for EasyChat but this might be the first SMS/text feedback I've seen. We're working on making the dashboard more informative

You can also use EasyChat to get the same information.

Hi Wyngs

That's just one of a few self-help options we offer. As some pointed out EasyChat through facebook is the same thing and if you don't have facebook you can go to my.exede.net

IN LEARNING ABOUT EXEDE/VIASAT I read MANY times that if I wanted more info I was supposed to TYPE (word) to #####. I've begun to wonder what mistake I made by signing a two year contract. I've even clicked a couple links that took me to dead pages. I got a PAPER mail welcoming me to V/E because they claimed no e address although I HAD received two mails (sent one minute apart). The paper had a paragraph with update e address at "myexede.com" that gave the impression or a hacked site (it works now that I've subscribed).

Finally found the Add Reply button hiding at the bottom of my slightly enlarged page. GLW
