On your ipad to go 'Settings' -> About -> Scroll down and you will see where it says 'Cellular Data Number'... this will let you know what number is assigned to your ipad.
None of the text messages from ATT are received on my Ipad. How to correct?

@AnneMarie Please see your thread. The phone number on tablets is not for calls or text, its for data only. A tablet is not a phone and cannot receive calls like a phone.
🐾 I don’t work for AT&T or any carrier. Never have, never will. My replies are based on experience and reading content available on the website. If you posted personal information, please edit and remove.
Thank you, but I received texts from ATT on this Ipad until July 2016. I continue to receive texts from friends and family, and successfully use Facetime voice and video. I know I cannot make phone calls. Last time I lost my att.net password (mail on this Ipad), ATT gave me a choice to email a reset link to the email I needed a password for (!!) or receive a text message with the link (text no longer arrives from ATT), or wait for USMail to arrive. I had no choice but to wait for mail, and, because I was out of town, I had to wait quite awhile. I went to an ATT store for help, and the clerk sad no hope and deleted my email account from this Ipad! Since receiving the letter, I successfully recreated my email, but can you sense my frustration about this text issue? Text used to arrive from 753-5 - ATT billing and payment notices, etc.
That was where you should have started.... this is an entirely different issue. Security.
Security texts of this type only go to the phone. I have 2 step protection on all accounts and ATT messages on a phone and tablet. Google, Facebook and iCloud verification codes only go to the phone.
Thank you - 2 step authorization a great idea.
