Why upgrade? Push Reminders
Premium users can get Reminders (which are follow-up reminders) delivered to their email inbox and/or their phone via SMS (aka, text messaging) where available***. This is one of the reasons Jason Alba created JibberJobber. In his job search he found his Excel spreadsheet was getting too messy and he was missing follow-up opportunities and even scheduled appointments, and he knew a web-based system would be able to send him reminders.
When you get these follow-up reminders is up to you. For example, you can get most of your Reminders sent to your email two days before they are due, or the day they are due. You can change when any single Reminder is sent to you. You can schedule a certain Reminder to be emailed seven days before it is due, and set another Reminder to be emailed one day before it is due.
You can also choose to have Reminder reminders sent to your phone via SMS (aka text messaging). Set this up under Account and then you'll be able to choose when you want to receive SMS reminders each time you set up an Reminder.
*** SMS should work fine in the U.S. Outside of the U.S. there are various texting charges that may apply that have nothing to do with JibberJobber. Whether the SMS notifications work in your country, or whether you get extra charges on your cell phone bill, will depend on your carrier. We apologize for not having this universal, and hope to find a resolution to make this work for you.
