    There’s no such thing as medium mobility. There’s only standard or Enhanced. 

    For reviews or change of circumstances they do not send decisions by text. This is only for new claims. 

    You can ring PIP and ask them what the decision is and they should be able to tell you. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Yes the letter usually says not to ring them but that doesn’t mean you can’t. They don’t send award texts for reviews. They often send a text to tell you that your review has been completed.
