[minervacirc] Text fails?

We are having trouble with email notifications going out as well.  Dozens have been returned with a “delivery delayed” message and others are now being returned as undeliverable.  This also started after the Sierra update.  I already have a ticket open, but wanted to let everyone know about another issue to watch out for.

Greetings and salutations, Library-Land.

I’m writing because, since the Sierra update on August 2, I cannot locate a single patron (myself included) that has received any text message notification.  We pushed the text notifications pretty hard due to frequent reports of failures in email deliveries.  Now, based on the evidence gathered from this little corner of the world, the texts appear to be disappearing into the ether as well.

I’ve double checked my own account which still says that my status is opted in.

So I’m here to ask – has anyone been receiving (or not receiving) text notices since August 2nd?  Is there some workaround to revive the function?  Or is this just an isolated incident in the Town of Gray?

Thanks for any insights that can be provided.
