SMS Notifications

I am a contractor on oDesk, here below are my suggestions which can solve my problems.!

Username Change On Request: I actually want to change my account username as it is looking so odd. So i was searching a way to change it but there is no option. Hope oDesk can make a option of changing username of a account for atleast 1 time upon request.

Notification Facility: When we apply for jobs and the clients reply us we don't know whether he sent a message or not if we are not online. I request oDesk to make a notification system for users via SMS to their mobile number.

Hope you will make these changes.
