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.
Doesn't work with Google Now -- if I try to send a text message using Google Now, I get "Message couldn't be sent". Spent an hour on the phone with AT&T customer support, doing a factory reset and then making sure the software was all up-to-date.Tried two new out-of-the-box tablets, LG G Pad X 8.0 and LG G Pad X 10.1, with the same failures. I was able to use Google Now to send emails, and I could use AT&T Messages with the keyboard to send texts; it's just the combination of Google Now and AT&T Messages that fails.
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!
Doesnt work without your cell I downloaded this app bc my phone just committed suicide. But in order for it to work you have to have a confirmation sent to your cell phone. There should be another way to confirm since im sure plenty of people want it for the same reason as me.
