Last night, just as I was falling asleep, my phone buzzes. I think to myself "who would be sending me a text message this late at night? It must be an emergency, I better check."
Turns out it was just an automated SMS from Public Mobile informing me rewards had been applied to my account. Sent at exactly midnight. See attached screenshot:
Looking back in my text history, I see that message is always sent at exactly midnight once every month when my Rewards are applied - I guess my phone was off or I was already asleep and it didn't wake me up on previous months.
In the meantime, if I want to leave my phone on overnight and not silence my incoming SMS notifications, in case of emergency, is there a way I can disable these SMS notifications?
@aprevost Yes, this is an issue for long time.
Some might suggest you to block Public Mobile (611), but I don't suggest you that. There are times this text is indeed useful
What you can do is add it to your contact but then set it as silent notification for this particular contact. In this case, you won't miss the text but it won't wake you up. You can go back and check it the next morning
