MyZmanim provides zmanim via SMS.
There are two ways to request a zmanim text-message:
Method 1: Make a phone call
Method 2: Send a text-message
This page discusses our text-messaging services. To learn how to get zmanim over the phone, please see MyZmanim Infoline.
Make a phone call
(Note: This method is only available to the following United States cell phone carriers: Verizon Wireless, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. If your cell phone belongs to another carrier or another country, you'll need to use Method 2 - "Send a text-message")
MyZmanim Textback knows the current time in your location, so you will only receive zmanim that are currently relevant and not zmanim that have already passed.

Composing a Zmanim Request|
Q: What should I write in the message?
A: All that is required is a location. You can enter a 5-digit US ZIP code, an 8-digit MyZmanim location ID, or in some cases, even the name of the city alone will suffice.
Q: How do I look up zmanim for other dates?
A: Include the day you want in your request. See below for examples.
Here are some common examples:
Note: Keywords are not case-sensitive.
FAQ's on Text-Message Requests:
Q: Why do I only get the zmanim through Chatzos? What happened to the other zmanim, like Plag and Shkia?
A: Because the permitted length of text messages is limited, we only send you what fits into a single text-message.
Q: Is there any way for me to get two text messages so that I can view a full day of zmanim?
A: Yes! Indicate a date or include the word "more" in your request (see above for examples)
