Creating and Sending Text Messages
Text messaging is only available with the AT&T Monthly Recurring data plan.
Note: For the Group option, if the number of recipients is less than 10, all members in the group will be added. You will need to delete any unnecessary members in the list by selecting the trash can icon and deleting unwanted entries.
Note: Enter additional recipients by separating each entry with a semicolon (;) then using the previous procedure.
Note: If you exit a message before you send it, it will be automatically saved as a draft.
