Are you using Electrum, Multibit, Bitcoin core or blockchain.info wallet, or any other wallet for that matter, and do you want to be alerted when you receive a payment such a mining etc?

It's pretty simple, here's how:

1. log into blockchain.info and create a new wallet https://blockchain.info/wallet/new
2. log into your wallet on blockchain.info/wallet
3. go to import/export tab
4. click Add Watch Only Address
5. enter the Bitcoin address of the wallet you want notifications for
6. ensure you go into account settings and add an email address to send to and/or a mobile number

This can be done for as many addresses as you like. Smiley

This may be somewhere else but I couldn't find it so I hope others find this useful.

Note: I All My Wallet accounts get 5 free SMS messages per day, more can be purchased from the my account page.

I may be mistaken but that sounds like 2 factor to access your account. Something different than OP post.

It is 2FA, and coinbase also send notification email when you receive Bitcoin or send Bitcoin to others

I use coinbase to buy and sell, and they offer email notification, but I can't find SMS notification anywhere in the settings on my profile (I'm in the US).

a note, with Blockchain wallets I don't get SMS messages if my wallet balance is empty. I guess they charge from them. Will try to confirm.

Very good information, all these clients don't have this feature but blockchain wallet does and by doing this one can be secure and updated as well of all the transactions on their secure addresses in real time. Thanks OP.

I was just thinking that there must be a cache, sms aren't free, they may be cheap locally but they're not when you're sending them internationally, see this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=528865.0

someone claimed to have been charged 0.0001. And do update us with your findings on this.

I just tested sending 0.001 into my main blockchain wallet and it sent me an SMS. will see if that happens now with the watched addresses and let you know.

Sweet!  Smiley This clears it then, 5 free sms`es but how much would be charged from 6th sms, that's the question.

It would probably be advisable to use email notification rather then SMS notification. Generally SMS are displayed on your phone's screen for anyone to see while emails are not.

You probably wouldn't want anyone near your phone that you just received money from someone, would you?
