How Message Volume Impacts Cellular Hardware

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 09:38:41 -0500

Cellular hardware is, by far, the fastest and most reliable method of sending SMS with PageGate. However, the hardware itself has its own limitations on how fast it can push the traffic to the outside world.

Typically speaking, cellular hardware will be able to accept one message for delivery every 2 or 3 seconds, which means that the upper delivery rate on most cellular hardware is between 20 and 30 messages per minute. If you try to push more traffic than the device is capable of handling, you'll receive a CMS Error 500 indicating that the device has been overloaded and that can cause message delivery headaches like missed messages.

5 privacy tips for iPhone texting

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 09:22:04 -0500

I will assume that if you are reading a blog post about texting privacy tips, then you already have a passcode or Touch ID or Face ID enabled to keep your iPhone protected when it is locked. The next step is to keep text alerts from appearing on the lock screen, where anyone can see them. To turn off lock screen notifications, go to Settings > Notifications > Messages and toggle off Show on Lock Screen in the Alerts section.

Alternatively, you can still get lock screen alerts but without the preview of the text message.

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Rwandas health system has seen great improvements in recent years, yet one area of health care remains underserved, particularly for young people: sexual and reproductive health.

Seven Ways to Use Transactional Messaging

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Research shows that it takes the average person 90 minutes to respond to an email message, but only 90 seconds to respond to a text message. Knowing that, retailers, brands and marketers need to develop mobile strategies that enhance existing efforts with SMS messages and reach consumers in the most direct way – on their personal devices. Surprisingly, 75% of consumers actually want companies to text them for anything ranging from appointment or payment reminders to special offers, yet only around 30% are doing so. Needless to say: this is a massive, untapped opportunity.

While traditional promotional SMS messages focus on marketing (one-day sales, product launches, weekly informative broadcast campaigns), transactional SMS messages based on triggered events add value for consumers because they’re personalized, relevant and timely. They are designed to increase loyalty, prevent lapsed buying behavior, and re-engage valuable consumers. So what are the benefits?

Mon, 4 Dec 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Smartphone devices are a scourge. Everyone is abused regularly by having to listen to one-sided conversations in public spaces or by colleagues and friends who don’t pay attention to conversations but focus instead on their screens.

Similar texting habits leads to relationship satisfaction

Fri, 1 Dec 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Texting is ubiquitous in modern day dating culture.

While relationships were once born out of thoughtful love letters and red, red roses, today romance blossoms via witty observations and phallic emojis.

However, the art of written communication is not to be dismissed, as a new study suggests that couples with similar texting habits might be more satisfied in their relationship as a result.

Psychologists at Pace University, New York, surveyed 205 Americans between the ages of 18 and 29, all of whom were in relationships.

Each participant was asked about different aspects of their texting behaviour, from frequency of initiation to the nature of their conversations i.e. whether they text just to say hello, to show affection or to raise an issue.

A Crisis Line That Calms With Texting and Data

But can algorithms be used to address more urgent social and individual problems, like how to build trust or provide effective care? Can algorithms be used to increase the love and kindness in the world?

These are the sort of questions that the people at the Crisis Text Line — a nonprofit organization that provides crisis intervention 24 hours a day via text messaging to the number 741741 — have been focusing on for four years. Their goal is to improve their own crisis counseling, shed light on the pain and suffering that Americans are experiencing every day and show how we can all find ways to respond better. Given the alarming rates of anxiety, loneliness, suicidal ideation, depression and substance abuse nationwide, this work warrants major attention.

PageGate Helps Reduce Response Times in Rural Areas

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 09:07:11 -0400

According to Kurtti, the fire department was paged at 11:49 a.m. and got help from the McMillan Township, Trout Creek and Watersmeet fire departments, Sonco Ambulance and the Michigan State Police on site.

The scene was cleared around 2:42 p.m., Kurtti said. I…would like to thank everyone for responding and helping out as many of us work out of town and had a lot of distance to cover. Without Page Gate, a new system used by MSP Station 80 in Negaunee that sends a text message to our phones, most of us would have been (too far) out of pager range to be notified.

Kurtti said the new system has been in place for seven months has been helping increase response times in rural communities.
