It's easy! Before you go, do the following:

1) Register your mobile number here (or from your Personal Profile)
2) Find the thread for snow conditions in your resort in the Snow Reports forum. If there isn't one, start one! At the bottom of the page, you'll find a button marked "Make this topic your 'fave'". Click it!
3) Save this number in your mobile +44 7 SNOWHEADS (follow the letters on your number keys and this should come out as +44 7 7669 43237)

And then you're all set! Once in resort, start your text to 07 SNOWHEADS with the word "fave", and the rest of your text will appear on your chosen thread Very Happy You don't need to leave a space between "fave" and the rest of your text so you can get the maximum amount of characters on describing the white stuff! snowHead

By the way, your fave doesn't have to be a Snow Report topic, it works for anything Wink

TallTone, A few questions...........
Is that a premium rate mobile number?
If I click several threads Embarassed which one does the txt go to, or does it go to all of them Cool
Can we send pictures as well?

Boredsurfing, no, it's a standard rate number. Texts will go to the last one you clicked on as your "fave". You can't send pictures at the moment, though admin may have plans there Wink

Boredsurfing, oops. Mistyped there (although nothing wrong with +44 7 SNOWHEADS Wink)

Should be +44 7766 943237.

One more technical note - for now, you can leave out the "fave" on your text (but don't!), and it will still post correctly. However, this default will probably change in the future, so best get into a good habit now wink Oh and if you leave out "fave" and happen to use one of the other keywords - such as "test" or "local" - you may get an unexpected result!

(this has indeed changed - you need to preface your message with 'fave' for it to be posted correctly)

Oh, here's another one that's working.

Start your message with 'intro' and follow it with a friend's number and they'll get a message from us inviting them to use the snowTexts service.
It also gives them a convenient message from which to save the number to their phone (in case they can't work out 07snowheads Very Happy)
This should prove very useful soon - you'll see Wink

Send a message with the word 'help' and you'll get an idea of some of the things that are coming.

There will be outbound text services too, which you'll be charged for.
The texts you get back from us, for example when you make an error or send 'help' or the one your friend gets from 'intro' are free, luv from sowHeads snowHead

Sending 'Stop' will temporarily prevent any texts coming to you from snowHeads (so you can be sure of a good night's sleep at the EoSB Embarassed)
Sending 'start' will restart the sevice.

Mmm.........I can't be doing it correctly - it shouldn't take this long to come through. I can't have the number right in my phone - its not keen on the plus sign on the +44 - I've tried 00447766 943237 and it doesn't seem impressed

But I'm impressed that you got the number to match 'snowheads'. snowHead

Megamum, in the UK you can simply do 07 SNOW HEADS (07 7669 43237). I gave the international code since I expect most texts to come from abroad wink

The 0044 you tried should work though. I've checked your set-up and it looks OK. Can't do any more from here though - try the simple 07 number above and if that still doesn't work, drop me a PM and I'll check it out tonight.

You couldn't pop over to France and try that could you? wink

Seriously, I know that the system works from abroad, as admin is reporting in from Arabba... ah - try sending a message starting "test" and store the number on the returned message Smile

Hey, Hey!! Very Happy Looks like I'm up and running. It's quite 'neat' isn't it? If I can fathom it (mobile phone type tech) then there is more than an even chance that everyone else can Laughing N.B. You get an automatic reminder if you forget to post FAVE at the front of the message too Laughing

Oh! I'd never bumped into the personal profile section before.
Before I go filling it all in though - how much displays to all members?
I can't see an option for public/private on things like the mobile number.

"Who will see this info?

Are those meant to be links as they aren't clickable on my browser (google chrome)?

wigan, they display help text when you hover over them. Sounds like it doesn't work in Chrome Sad

Ah well, here's what it should say Smile

Not many people have access to it, just Administrators - Gender and dob go to make up the 'birthday boy/girl' tag.

Height/weight/shoesize/ridestyle/weeksonsnow etc will be passed onto skihire shops if you're down for kit when u come to bashes, that sort of thing.

In future, there may be a forum restricted to subscribers only, which would display either the 'Familiar name' or 'forename' / 'surname' when you post but if you don't post to it, your name wont be shown.

Part of the reason for this profile is that we collect up lots of bits of info about people like addresses, phonenumbers or shoe size when they buy stuff or come to bashes and, under the Data Protection Act, you would have a right to ask us what info we hold on you. This way, just about everything is grouped together in one place and accessable to you to alter or even delete if you wish.

Thanks TallTone, I'll register my mobile number and have a go!
