For me, it would depend on a variety of factors:
1) Could I set the time for such a message (i.e., morning versus afternoon?)
2) Would text messaging rates apply? (i.e, would I be charged for the text regardless of plan?)
3) Could I set the types of messages I get? (For me, a reminder to exercise would be more useful than a reminder to eat fewer carbs, for example)
4) I know that I personally would prefer an e-mail as opposed to a text!
I think having reminders is great, however, if they're just going to be little tidbits or nothings then it might be a service I don't hang on to much, especially if I'd be charged for it by the phone company
