Update: 10/3/12 8:30 am
As explained below by JC, VTScoop has been running updates thru a separate site as a pilot program for 247Sports. Due to member request, we will continue to offer the separate service to Monthly members should they choose until they become available in the 247 wide Alert system in the first quarter of 2013. Please read thru the thread for more information. Thanks!
VTScoop.com and 247Sports now offers text alerts to all annual subscribers. Our current text alert service, which was available to all members will end on Sunday, Oct. 7.
Here's how you get started and begin receiving text alerts from 247Sports (665-55).
If you are an active ANNUAL subscriber to VTScoop (monthly members will need to go through the upgrade process prior to doing this), get text alerts by the following steps:
#1. Click on the "My Account" link located at the top right in your home site horizontal navigation strip.
#2. Enter your "username" and "password" to verify your account.
#3. Click on the "Alerts" link located in the horizontal nav under "Settings"
#4. Enter your active mobile number where you would like to receive the text alerts.
#5. Check the box indicating which specific alerts you wish to receive. Example: VTScoop/Va. Tech football
#6. Click "Save"
If you are an active MONTHLY subscriber to VTScoop.com, get text alerts by the following steps:
#1. First, you will need to UPGRADE your monthly subscription to an ANNUAL subscription.
#2. Click the "Upgrade" link/tab located at the top right of the site. The upgrade box is marked in green.
#3. Upgrade your account.
#4. After completing the Upgrade process, you will need to sign up for text alerts.
#5. Click on the "Alerts" link located in the horizontal nav under "Settings" (Located in the "My Accounts" section: See above)
#6. Enter your active mobile number where you would like to receive text alerts.
#7. Check the box indicating which specific alerts you wish to receive. Example: VTScoop/Va. Tech FB
#8. Click "Save"
Remember, Text Alerts are available only to Annual subscribers to VTScoop.com and 247Sports.
Text Alerts 2.0
Although Text Alerts are only available to ANNUAL members, in the near future VTSCOOP/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 BOL. 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.
OLD VTSCOOP TEXTS
We will continue sending VTSCOOP texts for breaking news from the old account until Sunday. When you sign up for the new alerts, please text STOP VTSCOOP to 46786.
Thanks as always for being a member of VTScoop.com. This system will allow us to be more cost-efficient with this service and will give our mobile users more options for customizable alerts in the future.

I don't think I've gotten any In-Game texts this season past the GT game. Why is that?
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Can't blame then for perks for people who pay in advance, smart business IMO.
True from the provider side, but you are locked in for the duration of that yearly subscription. No refund if you choose to discontinue. How many people got stuck on HH when everyone left? The monthly people are already paying a $20/yr premium over the annual fee. Seems like that would be enough. Reminds me too much of cell phone, internet phone, and satellite service subscription services ploys. Bad business, jmo.
Not smart at all IMO ... What's next monthly subscribers can't read VIP post ? So I get penalized a service because I dont pay up front for a year? I have been a member for over 8 months but thats gonna end soon looks like another competing site is starting to rub off on 247sports.
Exactly dex that's why I'm out this piece
Agree 100%. Monthly already pay more. Terrible move 247.
Agree. Now, you're establishing another tier of service. That's BS!

Sorry man but maybe you missed my post before that one ? I did not direct any anger towards the vtscoop staff . I just stated my reasoning for being angry over this to a staff member. Sorry if I sounded like I was angry or attacking this site because this is not the case. Peace
Oh and one more thing and I believe I speak for many on this issue, the text messaging is major for some who can't live on this site 24/7 such as myself and don't have the funds to fork out a year subscription at once. Thanks
Its not at you or CZY but the network. Id expect this kinda bull from the folks at Rivals, but not here. I see the strategy behind it, covering yourself in the off-season when there won't be many updates and risk losing monthly members, I just don't agree with it.
If 247 believed in its product and its staff as much as its users do, then they shouldn't have to pull a stunt like this.
