Do u text? We do 2! :D

NewMessageSmartphone.jpgR u a texter? Then u know OMG, LOL and :). Did u know Springs Utilities texts? U can get alerts re ur account – like bill due, $ recd.

Okay, I tried, but I can’t go on. I thought I could write this entire blog post in the format of a text message as a clever way to let you know about our new texting feature, but that’s just too tough to read (and write for that matter) for any greater length than an actual text message.

The big news, though, is that we now offer text notifications about your account.

  • If you want to know when your bill is ready to view, we’ll send you a text.
  • Need a reminder that your bill is due in just a few days? No problem, we’ll send you a message.
  • Want to know that we received your payment? Check your phone, we’ll let you know.

That seems pretty basic, but that’s what text messaging is: basic communication. Let’s cut the clutter and get right to it in 160 characters.

How do you sign up? Sign in to your online account – or create one if you don’t already have one – and look for the notifications link to the left. Then add a cell phone number or numbers where you would like to receive messages. Once you to that, watch your phone for a text verifying your request to sign up for our texting service. Simply confirm that and you’re signed up.

Don’t worry, we won’t send you any selfies or share your information with anyone. This is strictly for notifications about your account.

So, there you go. Share with friends. “OMG, just got text from CSUtilities. :)”​
