Hi @Steve11/16/2014 


iPhone use Apple's iMessage system on top of AT&T's SMS text messaging. But SMS might be turned off, check in Settings - Messaging and make sure "Send as SMS" option is enabled. You might need to restart your phone if you're still having issues with that.


Please let us know if you still need help.


Thank you,
