|What Is...||Signing In to Chat||Sending a Text Message||Switching Between Texting, Chat, and Email|
Email and chatting are great when you want to communicate with friends on computers. Now with att.net Mail’s text messaging feature, you can also reach out to friends and family through their SMS-enabled mobile devices, without having to use a separate text messaging application.
You know the kind of situation. You’re at the office and your teenager and her cell phone are out there somewhere. You need to know what she’s up to, but you don’t really want all your cubicle neighbors to listen in on a phone conversation. You can simply sit at your computer, send a text message to your child using att.net Mail, and receive an immediate response.
So, let’s just repeat the highlights and get you texting!
Notes: Wireless carriers may charge your contacts fees for receiving and sending text messages. But att.net Mail users are not charged for sending or receiving text messages in att.net Mail—for you, it’s free!
All you have to do to start text messaging is sign in to chat through your online status.
