We will be discontinuing our MyKnoxnews.com SMS text alerts at the end of this year.
In the 11 years we have had this service, a lot has changed with mobile phones. Smart phones are ubiquitous with an estimated 69.6 percent of the U.S. population having one. In 2010 (three years after we started the MyKnoxnews.com text service), that stat was only 20.2 percent.
Having push and SMS alerts became a bit confusing to us and our readers. We’ll have just one phone alert method in 2019: Push alerts via our apps.
We encourage you to download our app if you don’t have it and enable alerts.
Here is how to manage push alerts on the iPhone. The drill for Android phones is similar.
