With the schiphol Website schiphol Website (Amsterdam airport) it is possible to receive travel updates with the mobile phone. Doing the registration I received the following error message:
"Please enter a valid e-mail address or mobile phone number
Must be in the format dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm:ss"
How should I add a phone number as a date?
The problem was that the schiphol site does not allow the plus sign, e.g. +43664... with the phone number. 0043664... is required.
Update: it seems that the service doesn't work with non-Dutch phone numbers. It's a long time to go for mobile computing.
