Use Google Calender to Get Free SMS Reminders

Google Calendar’s reminder features are awesome. To my knowledge they are one of the only services that get away with sending SMS messages to mobile phones without paying some additional charge to enable receiving SMS from email. The only problem is using GCal reminders is limited to events only, not tasks or random reminders.

Solution? Create a specific calendar just for reminders (or anything else you’d like to have SMS’d to you). You it toggle it on/off when you look at your calendar so the reminders don’t clutter your calendar. Works for recurring reminders and all that jazz.
