Getting Design Squad News messages on your Mobile Phone.

Design Squad uses the Twitter web service to post news updates. You can read these updates on the Design Squad News page on this website.

You can also choose to receive these updates as text messages on your mobile phone. You don't need a Twitter account to do this, just a mobile phone that can send and receive text messages.

Please note: this is an optional service provided through Twitter. Normal text messaging rates will apply for any text messages you sign up to receive. For more information, please see the Twitter Help Center article: How to Get Updates on Your Phone Without a Twitter Account.

Here's how to sign up to receive text messages from Design Squad:

  • Write a new text message with the words: follow DSquadNews
  • Send that message to the number 40404 (which is Twitter's number)
  • You will receive a text message back from Twitter saying that you're now following @DSquadNews, and with some additional instructions
  • If you want to stop getting messages, send the word STOP twice in succession to the number 40404
