Help I am trying to get newest published caches sent to my cell phone via text message and I am having no luck. Is this possible or do I need a internet connection on my phone?

Thanks.

If you are having them sent to your e-mail address also you have to create separate notices for you phone for every kind of cache you want to get a txt for.
Put your number in the "Send to another e-mail address". I use AT&T so this is what mine looks like

##########@txt.att.net numbers removed and # used.

Just in case you dont know yours here is a gateway that list most.

Been a while since I used it. I cant remember if you get the coords or not. There is also the option of using Google Sync and Gmail.
linky This gives you the option to push e-mail to your phone less than the 15 minutes to pretty much instantly.

If your asking if a data package is required, then yes it is. For most things outside of the SMS text messages a data package is required.
