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)

If you do not receive zmanim text-messages, please confirm with your provider that text-messaging is enabled for your mobile phone. If the problem persists, contact us with your mobile number and carrier.
