Google Calendar reminders with Verizon phones

A number of people have pointed out that google calendar does not support Verizon phones for SMS reminders. Well here's a simple workaround I used.

In Gmail
  1. Login to your gmail account
  2. click Settings
  3. click Filters
  4. click Create a new filter
  5. in the From box, enter: calendar-notification@google.com
  6. click Next Step
  7. select Forward it to: email address
  8. enter <yournumber>@vtext.com
  9. click Create Filter
In Google Calendar
  1. click Settings
  2. click Notifications
  3. check EMAIL for Event reminders

And voila! Calendar notifications now go straight to your verizon phone!
