Hey

 

I just upgraded my mobile contract yesterday to a data only contract with a microsoft surface pro x, I was told I could still receive text messages and set up whatsapp on this, can you help with how to set this up.

 

I can see an app called messages but it doesnt give facility to send and isnt receiving any test messages I have sent so may not be set up right. 

 

thanks

Stewart

You may need to set your message centre number, see help here

The Microsoft Messaging app, is only for operator generated messages.

It doesn't support sending or receiving text messages.
