Apple Store Now Sends Order Status Updates By Text Message
The online Apple Store is now offering to send you order status updates by text message.
Apple Notifications is a text-message-based alerts service designed to keep you up-to-date on your shipment and/or pickup notification status. In addition to standard email notifications, you can also request text message updates when you're in Checkout. The number of messages you'll receive will vary depending on the orders you placed.
What to Expect
Once your order ships, or is available for pickup, we'll send you a text message. The text message will include your order number and a link to online Order Status. Texts are sent between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. in your time zone.
The supported carriers are: Alltel, AT&T, Boost Mobile, Cricket, Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless, and Virgin Mobile USA.
How to turn off text notifications:
To stop receiving text notifications, simply reply STOP to the text message. Texting HELP to 83372 will give you additional information.
You will be able to enable text message status updates during checkout.
