    NEXT PHASE: Text Alerts 2.0

    Although Text Alerts are only available to ANNUAL members, in the near future VotH/247Sports members will be able to earn free text alert services through various methods. Users can get free text alerts by consecutive months of service (applicable to monthly members), user ratings and reputations, posting on the message boards and referring members to VotH. All of these services are expected to be added once our engineers complete the rewrite of the user management and reputations system which is expected during Q1 2013.
