Proper provisioning If you're getting a token error, you need to enable the messages backup & sync service on your phone first. Open your apps folder, find an app named Device Help. Once it loads, click Tutorials up top. Scroll down, click Email & Messaging. Click AT&T Messages backup & sync. Here is a tutorial for enabling the service on your phone, as well as links to instructions for setting up this app on your tablet. If you still have issues, and customer service tells you they can't fix it, insist on being transferred.
Not syncing I've used this app for several years with no problems until recently. For the last 2 weeks incoming messages will not come through the app on my tablet. I can only see messsges I send. Very inconvenient! Also, call log and voice mail is not syncing.
Inconsistent AT&T app I only get some incoming messages for the number I am logged in as. Switched over to galaxy S7 and galaxy tab S2. From iPhone and ipad. So now I loose features as a result. I will use a tablet to text at times just because it is easier to type. I'm sitting here at home on WiFi and see a incoming text on my phone but no incoming text on this new waste of time tablet and app. Typical AT&T
Can't sign in I have ATT service, both wifi and mobile, yet when I try to use this using the same user ID and password as on my phone and U-Verse service it tells me that I have to us my other ID. They're both the same! I've reset my password and recovered my user ID yet it still won't let me in! Recently switched from Verizon, now there's an excellent messaging app!
Worst app ever Only works when it feels like it on a tablet, so if you really need to get a text to someone forget it!! Used it for years without problems, but couldn't get an emergency message through if you needed to now. Find another app!!
As usual! Dumbest waste of space for yet another ATT product , app that SUCKS! Does ATT wonder why your apps get lower ratings than others. Not only that, they pre-install it.
