If you are experiencing an issue of not receiving an SMS reminder please understand that PayByPhone cannot guarantee the delivery of text reminders due to the involvement of third party services that may be outside of PayByPhones control.
We strongly suggest that a Parker instead enable in-app notifications on your Android or iOS device. These messages are less reliant on outside technologies and deliver the same parking expiry/extension notifications that an SMS reminder does.
To enable in-app notifications, look for the PayByPhone app in your devices Settings and enable push notifications.
Delayed delivery times or non-delivery can occur when your network is experiencing problems. If you are not receiving these reminders, first verify that the SMS Reminder setting is enabled.
If the feature is enabled, then we ask you to contact your phone company.
If you're located in North America, please ask your phone company about potential blockages of long codes beginning with the following digits +1-778-200-****.
These codes are owned by our company and used to deliver commercial texts in the form of parking reminders and other texts from our service.
Please note that tickets resulting from the lack of SMS reminder received will be reviewed at the discretion of the issuing parking authority.
