No. e2Campus uses industry

What can I do if I didn't get the
verification/validation code that was sent by e2Campus when I
signed up for Raider-Aid?
Log into the Raider-Aid site and check your
phone number and provider. If your number or provider is
incorrect, then click on "Change Status" to update and resend a
validation code. If you still do not, you'll want to

Is there any way to test my phone
to see if SMS text messaging works on my phone?
The simplest way is to have a colleague
or friend send you a text message and in return, you send
them a text message. If either does not work, you'll
want to check with your provider as to what your plan or service
includes. If you can send and receive messages, visit
the e2Campus cell phone
test page to ensure you have chosen the right
cellular phone carrier/provider.
What happens if I don't get the
campus-wide test message?
If you didn't get the campus-wide test
message, then follow these procedures:
Have a colleague/friend/coworker send you a
text message from their cell phone. If this doesn't work, skip to
If you are able to receive a message, then
visit the e2Campus cell phone test
page to test your service with them. If you receive
their test message, then the service is enabled and you'll want to
log into Raider-Aid to verify your account
information. If not, e2Campus can be reached directly at
(800) 936-3525, option 0.
If you were not able to receive a text
message from a colleague/friend coworker, then you'll need to
contact your cellular service provider for assistance with your
service, plan or device.
If after completing these steps you are not
able to receive a test call, contact Lindsey Wilson College Student
Services at (270) 384-8036.
