AOL Alerts & Reminders keep you instantly informed of important events wherever you are. * Use alert groups to keep friends and family up-to-date on the important breaking news of your life. Whether it's a new job, the next family reunion, or your football team's end-of-the-year victory bash, alert groups keep everyone on the same page.
Reminders help you simplify your life. Set a reminder for a birthday or wedding, give yourself time to start holiday shopping, and never miss an important appointment again. Both alerts and reminders can be delivered to you on AOL, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), or your mobile phone.* Members will incur text messaging charges on their AOL bill for mobile delivery of alerts.
