Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What about my privacy?

We only send text, phone and email messages to the phone number or email address you provide. Text messages are delivered over the cellular network to your mobile device.

Note: These messages may contain information such as customer name, appointment date and time, length of appointment, last four digits of account number, payment amount and payment due date.

You can access further privacy information in the privacy section of our website.

What types of messages can I receive?

When you sign up for notifications, you can choose which types of notifications you want to receive.

You'll be able to edit your preferences for notifications on the following topics:
  • Appointments (including scheduling reminders, confirmations and cancellation notices)
  • Billing Notifications (including confirmations and change notifications)
    • If you're enrolled in paperless billing or Auto Pay, you'll automatically receive billing notifications.
    • If you don't sign up for Billing Communications, you're still responsible for making timely payments.
  • Service Alerts (including major service notices)
  • Account Notifications (including order confirmations and change-of-service notices)

How many messages will I receive?

The number of messages you receive is typically related to the number of communications you sign up for. For example, each on-site service appointment will generate a reminder the day before the appointment. Confirming the appointment by replying "confirm" will result in an "appointment confirmed" message unless you adjust your preferences accordingly.

If you'd like to stop receiving text message alerts, you can reply "STOP" to any Spectrum text message. You can also reply "HELP" to any Spectrum text message to get more information. Manage your preferences online.
