3rd Party Messaging Apps and Data Usage

HI, I use a 3rd party Messaging app for my sms and I was wondering if it applies to data usage. The app is called QKSMS

Hey there @Drenych


I’d be happy to help with your app usage! QKSMS uses standard text messaging methods, and would not use any data when sending standard texts. As with all SMS apps, sending group messages or MMS will result in data use as both require data in order to function.


If this helps, please mark this answer as an accepted solution!

Hi there, ! Let's answer your messaging inquiry!


AT&T Messages doesn't support messages sent using third-party IP-based messaging services. So message sent through third party messaging applications will not reflect in your usage history. You can learn more about AT&T messages by visiting our AT&T Wireless Support webpage.


We hope we answered your question correctly. If you have additional questions, please share them in a new post because you've commented on a older post which can be closed at any time. We want to be sure to address all your concerns.
