Text messaging

A text message allows you to send a message from one mobile device to another. A text is a great way to get in touch with a friend quickly and conveniently.

Nearly all mobile devices sold today allow you to send a text message. A standard text is 160 characters in length and multiple texts can be sent in one message.

If you’ve got a tablet, your tariff may not include a text message allowance and you’ll be charged at standard rates.

Check our device guides which show you how to send messages from some of our more popular devices.
