When I have an alert set, is there a way to get iCal to text my phone?
edit: saw ical and thought ichat.... sorry
There are a number of ways to do this, but the easiest is this:
1) Almost every major cell phone company has an e-mail address associated with the SMS inbox of your cellphone. For my T-Mobile, it's the ten digit phone number @tmomail.net -- email@example.com -- and when you send to that e-mail address, you get an SMS on your phone with the body text. So step one is to find out what yours is. Open Address Book and add this e-mail address to your own address card (the one marked "Me").
2) Then select the appointment in question, and under alarm in the sidebar, click where it says "Message" or whatever, and select e-mail. Your SMS e-mail address will be visible in the list below.
Yes, most cell phones have an email address attached to them, for example firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the options in iCal is to send an email as an alarm, so if you use your phone's email address then you should get the message on your phone.

Kind of surreal that we even chose the same fugazi SMS address.
Yeah, very weird
Awesome, didn't think of that. Thanks a ton!
