Hi,

Is there any Free Online Calendar Website which can remind through email and/or TXT message
on mobile?

Thanks in advance,

Greg

Wouldn't it be easier to have your reminders without even having to go online? Let us know what operating system you use, eg Windows XP etc, and do you have anything like MS Office?

Or do you actually require the reminders to come to you via your mobile?

Google Calendar (https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=cl&passive=true&nui=1&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fcalendar%2F render&followup=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fcalendar%2F render)might have what you want (need Gmail account)...

I second Google Calendar (http://www.google.com/calendar/render?hl=en&tab=wc). Enabling both email and txt reminders is easy, txt reminders are free in NZ (as far as I know), and the interface is about as usable as any, with great support for exporting, calendar sharing, etc.

It's a great service and even better when used as part of the Google Apps (http://google.com/a/) suite in combination with your own domain (a bit technical to set-up but a great free all-round online service).

Thanks everybody for reply,

I have looked Google Calendar and I think this the one I am looking for. But just need to confirm txt reminders are free or not !

To "Greg" : Yes it is not needed to be online. I am using Vista and Office 2007. If you got some better calendar in windows then let us know. One thing to let you know, I am more interested in free txt messages feature.

Thanks,

OK, I'll throw another vote in for Google Calendar.

Have been using that and a little app called SyncMyCal, which syncs the Outlook calendar, and the Google calendar. Best of both worlds.

I'm not sure about the txt feature though, I don't think you'd find anything like that where txt alerts are completely free, you don't get something for nothing.

Receiving SMS notifications from Google Calendar is free (http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=37173&topic=8568). I wasn't sure earlier but checked the help docs (which Google always keep well maintained). They mention carrier charges in the US but we aren't charged for receiving txts in NZ.

Bonus.

Oooh.... I like this. Now I don't have to remember to check my calendar; my calendar can bug me! Outlook/Evolution just lost a longtime supporter (although if Evolution gains the ability to talk to google calendar... I can't wait for this :D)

Edit: Even better, it appears Evolution already has this ability :thumbs:

Just tried Sync my Cal it works great with Google calender and Office 03 pro calender only thing is the free version will only synchronise up to 3 days in advance
