    Dear Sprint / Boost / Nextel / Virgin Mobile subscribers,
    ESPN Alerts are no longer available from your carrier. We apologize for the inconvenience, however, our service is available across most other US Carriers.

    I got the same message. This pisses me off. I thought Sprint and ESPN had a relationship with the Sprint ID stuff.

    Has to be related to somebody making more money.

    Update: And just like that, we get a tip about what's really going on. Here 'tis:

    It's not a "money thing" in the traditional sense. They didn't give us a real clear picture of what's going on, but ESPN offers these messages free of charge to ESPN.com members, and Sprint is going to start charging their customers for each individual text message, regardless of having an unlimited messaging package. ESPN really isn't going to put up with it being "free," yet not free.

    If that's true, apparently Verizon or At&t sabotaged Don Hesse's dictionary.

    Couldn't get this to work. Tried to put my GV number and the text never came through. And I have it set up to receive texts. Maybe I should just set up a new ESPN account.
