Can alerts be received by text on an old fashioned phone or do I have to have a smartphone?

You do not need a smartphone, you can choose to have 3rings notify you — and optionally any family & friends you add to your account — with a standard text message or a phone call to a standard old fashioned mobile phone or calls to a normal phone.

However, right now you'll need to log in to our website in order to take responsibility for an alert and resolve it, as we don't currently support this via text message.
