SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently nindustrial 7/4/12 7:03 AM
I used to have a couple of numbers saved in my Contact list so that when Google Calendar SMS Reminders came in, they were all labelled 'Google Calender Reminder' and grouped in one chat window on my SMS client on my iPhone.

Now recently (as of a month or so ago), Google seems to be using a LOT of different sender numbers for these SMS reminders, and I'm getting SMS spam in my Messages App from a whole different list of numbers. I'd like to keep them together, but am unable to add ALL the sender numbers to the 'Google Calender Reminder' contact (since it's synced over Exchange, and I'm limited to only a few phone number fields). Plus, there's no guarantee there won't be new sender numbers anyway.

What changed recently? I'd hate to lose this SMS reminder feature, but might have to turn it off and switch over to email instead.

Same probelm. Can anyone provide any suggestions on how to deal with this. It's so annoying.
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently nindustrial 7/16/12 11:24 AM
I decided to turn this off, create a dedicated email account for calendar notifications, auto-filter from my regular email account to this new account, and then tweaked the notifications settings in iOS for this specific email account. a bit of a kludge workaround, but better than all the spam i was getting in my sms inbox..

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently MurrayWG 7/25/12 7:56 AM
Yes - same problem here. This is remarkably annoying since it buries all of my other text messages on my phone - since I now have a list of google numbers.

I am afraid this is such a problem that I am now going to have to turn off SMS notifications. 

Surely they realize this is an issue?

Hi there,

I'll be reaching out to you three offline to look into the issue- I need a bit more information so I'd like it to be in a private space.  Please be on the watch for my email!

Dear Katherine,

i have the same problem going along with another one and still persist for about a few months:

- sms reminders are arriving from random +44 prefix phone numbers, never from the same one as before.
- and the message texts are also messed up, seemingly not being transferred as Unicode: usually a question mark (?) character appears instead of special eastern eurpean characters (like "áéőúőóüö"). I live in Hungary. This has never been an issue before!

Feel free to get in touch with me privately!

Hi Katherine,

I've been having the same problem for quite a while now, I believe it has been over a month now. 

I have just now disabled all sms notifications for all calendars, then I disabled the mobile setup by erasing my number, saving, putting it back, validating the auth code, and finally, re-enabling sms notifications on one of my calendars.

I created new event on my calendar to have multiple reminders, and I still get sms notifications from different numbers.


Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently KatherineG 8/6/12 12:51 PM
Thank you!  Would you both mind mentioning your carriers and country of residence?  If I need more info after that I'll reach out to you privately.

Thanks again :)

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently ClarityAnth 8/8/12 9:23 AM
Same here. Driving me crazy! The Google incoming numbers are random area codes. The latest was a Euro number!

Thank you for looking into this.

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently LSPhoto 8/8/12 9:44 AM
This has also been happening to me. I had no notifications for about 3 weeks, couldn't even get a verification message. Since then, each and every message comes from a different number. Even repeat notifications for the same event. 
I'm also on Rogers in Canada.

Thanks!

Hi Katherine,
I'm experiencing the same problem, it started a couple of months ago. I live in sweden in the 08 area code, and Telia is my carrier.

Found some other threads discussing this and one proposed solution was to switch phone number and then switch back again, but that made no difference for me.

Thanks!
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently DidTheTourist 8/15/12 6:59 AM
Hello,
I just want to confirm that i experience the same issues:
- reminders sent from different numbers (instead of normally 36665 before).
- Since one week or two, SMS reminders are not sent at all (get only 1out of 10) or sent quite some time after or send in double
- My provider is orange in France
- other reminders (email, popup) are fine

Tks for looking at it

Same problem here, also with Rogers - Canada area code 416. Very annoying :-)

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently LSPhoto 8/17/12 1:55 PM
Is it possible that the numbers we are receiving reminders from belong to subscribers of the service?

 If this is the case, there's one heck of a privacy issue here..

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently MikeMulligan 8/26/12 1:52 PM
Just chiming in as another voice to say this has also been happening to me recently, and I am also a Rogers customer. I vaguely recall this happening once before and I don't remember how it was resolved. For reference I am on a Galaxy Nexus with 4.1.1 (rooted, but no custom roms/kernels)
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently PCRoy 8/28/12 8:59 AM
Hello KatherineG,

Good to see your are on the problem.  Here's a couple of info, to help you guys solve this issue.

- Provider : Rogers / Canada (area code 819) - It says Carrier Rogers 12.0
- Device : iPhone 4S, on iOS 5.1.1 (9B206)
- I had trouble with Caller ID twice before and they had to make a firmware update recently
- and I had to wait for an OS update the first time, I think it was a iPhone 4S trouble at first
- at the moment, I am in a region out of the city where 3G is not available, so I am most of the time on E (or 2G)
- but I think I have the trouble even when I am on full 3G
- Rogers doesn't even want to talk about the issue and are referring me back to you guys
- it does the same from all SMS from Google, code sent and all


Can you not just push caller ID as Google to all SMS from any of your numbers?

Thank you,

Keep us informed.

Adding to the list from Asia, mine's on Singtel in Singapore. 
Got reminders sent from +44 (Manx Telecom, Isle of Man UK) and +674 (and island called Nauru in the Pacific). Thought it was due to changing the language setting to UK English. But other than this annoyance, this service is great!
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently ukuleleboy 9/18/12 1:42 AM
Hi Katherine,

Just thought I'd add data on my experience. I only started noticing the problem yesterday (17/09/2012) and I use Google Calendar SMS reminders a lot! Several a day in fact.

I live in Dersingham, King's Lynn, Norfolk PE31 6QA, UK and my Mobile network provider is O2

First three reminders came from +1-876-771-0686, then three from +1-876-77100529 (two of which I had set up simply to investigate the problem). This morning's randomly came from +447781470659, so no pattern developing there!

Many thanks

The issue started in the last couple of weeks for me here in the UK (Vodafone). There's no way of telling that a message is incoming from Google Calendar as they appear from a different (UK +44) number every time.

Classic. Reason why google SMS r free is because they r using registered numbers to send the reminders without asking the mobile users permission. Before this was hidden and masked from users but now leaked. That's my theory.
Try ringing the numbers up and ull get someone answering who also uses google SMS

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently davidrsim 12/7/12 2:24 AM
That seems very unlikely - I don't know how they could technically use someone else's text messages. They can offer free texts because they have massive buying power in the market.

The format of the message has changed which makes me think Google has switched to a new system. We're seeing the underlying mobile numbers because they're not being masked as they presumably were before.
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently Infotech2897 12/7/12 4:57 PM
Hmmm, I just rang the numbers andpeople have answered not knowing who I was. I explained that their number was used to send me google reminders.....
Try ringing/returning the google mobile numbers yourself.

I started getting separate style SMS messages from Google on 1jan13.

Country - Malta (+356)
Carrier - GO Mobile (79)

Hope we go back to the original format as it was much neater and less random numbers to go through.

Someone told me it was due to a law in US that prevented people sending anonymous SMS - don't believe this as with the new system we are getting messages from unknown numbers (not Google) so I don't really know if the message is coming from Google or some other persons phone !

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently Madsteven 1/16/13 7:18 AM
Honestly the reason why this sucks AND is a problem, is because in androids and other modern phones you can delete threads, and tbh , having to look for and delete each and every notification sucks.
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently Madsteven 1/16/13 7:19 AM

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently sarah11918 1/17/13 6:02 AM
Yes, it's the multiple thread thing for calendar notification that's annoying.

But just this morning, I received two calendar updates from the same number!  (+40505075164)  This is also a different country code than all the individual ones I was receiving.  So it seems that something has changed on my end.  I'll try and prompt more calendar notifications to see if they all now come from this number.
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently davidrsim 1/17/13 6:56 AM
I'm finding that my updates are also now coming from a single number - hopefully it'll stay that way!

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently Paul E Gray 1/17/13 10:59 PM
Has recently started happening for me in Australia also (perhaps the last two months).

Originally , had the number set up in my iphone as a contact with a particular text tone.

Then it changed to start being all different numbers.

A short while after that, SMS notifications started coming through, automatically listed as Caller ID being Google.

Then it changed, to start being a different number everyone time.

Currently, the ones I have are:
+46 73749 46 32
+46 73749 46 35
+46 73749 46 37
+46 73749 46 39

+46 73749 45 77

+61 431 719 553

Would like it to go back to the simple way it was before.

Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently LSPhoto 2/14/13 8:38 AM
Last night I found the last message that actually identified itself as comin from google, and I received it on June 14th, 2012.

For some people who use google calendar less often than I, this might not be such a pain. However, I use it for timekeeping at my job. I typically receive around 20 notifications a week.

With every message from a different number.

For the last 3 months or so, I've been keeping a list of the numbers on my computer. It's not a short list, either.

It's been roughly 6 months since we were told that this issue was being investigated, and more people are posting about it every few days. We also haven't been given any updates from any google staff.

I think everybody posting here would like updates, and in my opinion, this isn't very good customer service, even for a free product.

Hi, Katherine!

I have the same problem in Belarus (country code 375) with carrier MTS (code 29). My phone number format is +375 29 XXX-XXXX
Because of different phone numbers in messages from Google (mainly reminders) it groups in separate conversations. And to find messages from friends becomes harder.

Thanks in advance.

I've been keeping track of the number of different numbers since New Years, and I'm now up to 380, a few from North America, but primarily Denmark, with an almost equal number from Romania.

I can't believe how many people are having this issue, with some of us going on now well over a year!!! I don't know why all of us are still here!

Better yet, many posts since New Years, and when was the last time someone from Google actually checked in? Wow..

Was there ever a resolution to this issue?

Not to my knowledge, sadly. Perhaps this is their way of saying "turn it off to save us the SMS costs"?

If anyone has a fix, please put the rest of us out of misery.

Given how long this has been an issue (more than a year) without resolution, I suspect we had better get use to the idea that this is here to stay. Either it is operating as google wishes, or they do not view it as important enough to fix. It would have been nice to hear from someone at Google telling us what their intent is.

Hi All,

Just to give an update from Google. We are still working on this issue. There are lots of different factors involved including working with other countries and their telecommunications systems. I'll let you know as soon as I have a further update. 

Best,
Sarah

At least for Orange Israel it looks that is has been resolved.

Hi Sarah,  Thank you very much for replying.  

Could you get Google to allocate more staff to answering these questions quicker?

What is the exact cause of this problem?  This problem has unresolved for more than a year now.  See Other topic.

We trust Google with our contact information and this problem and the length of time it has taken to get fixed lessens my trust of Google.

Please tell us exactly what is causing this problem.   And advise us when it will be fixed.

Best Regards,
Greg Hetherington

My guess is that it's a cost based script based on the most cost effective way for a carrier/provider  to send an international SMS.  Personally does not bother me as I get the reminders on time and within a defined schedule and it's free.

Also in the Philippines with Globe Telecom. 

Get sms from different countries

So these incoming SMS are free to receive?

This is an old post but obviously nothing got resolved; I still get this. Every reminder is a different number.
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently denne 10/30/13 3:13 PM
You get what you pay for. In terms of Google, it's a free service so they don't have any SLA to fix these issues. They don't care about your trust. You are the product ;)
Re: SMS reminders coming from different numbers, started recently bickerdyke 10/31/13 3:55 AM
I guess it's cheaper (if not the only way at all)  to use an array of SMS gateways to send out the gazillions of text messages every day.

Besides that, you#re right with the free product, but you should also mention that the Google services are also available in a business grade quality, including customer support and everything. And yes, YOU are the custumer then! :-) (Which is the main reason why I strongly advide against using the free version for business purposes)

Yesterday I verified my Google apps account and the SMS came from the same prefix, the last 5 digits the same as my own number last 5 digits. I'm on TPG too, with a Nexus 4. Interestingly to sign in here I had to verify again, this time the SMS came from "Google".
