Texting Outage notification broken

​Hello Xfinity Support Team,​

​I recently had an X1 outage which I used the Xfinity My Account App to confirm and then used the Outage Map to Text me when resolved service. ​
​The X1 service was restored but a text was never received. It has worked in the past. ​
​Just making a PSA so you are aware. ​

@XfinitySheila​ thanks for the offer but it was really just a PSA since the outage was resolved in time just no notification. 
I’ll reach out if it happens again next time. Thanks!

@TigerJr It's no problem at all! Our team is always here to help! If you find yourself in a pickle again and not receiving any text notifications from us just a couple things to check are as follows!

1) Please ensure that you have not blocked messages from short codes on your device
2) We always want to make sure that our number specifically hasn't been accidentally blocked or added to a restricted list from the device too! 

As we do know that there are certain settings such as blocking specific numbers, as well as short codes may be something underlying! That said, we're glad to be here to provide support when needed, but it sounds like you are familiar with our handy app, and all set now! Please don't ever hesitate to reach out and have a beautiful day! 🙂
