Can I use my laptop to send & receive texts?

I find it extremely tedious to type text messages on the small keypad on a cell phone.  Is there any way I can set up my AT&T services so I can send & receive text messages via my laptop?

Hello @Retipuj,

Thank you so much for reaching out to us! I can certainly understand how much of a hassle it is to try and text with how small keypads are made these days.

AT&T Messages is a free service which allows customers the ability to send and receive text messages from a computer or tablet. This feature also stores messages for up to 90 days on a free cloud space. For more information, click here.  

I hope this information is helpful. If you have questions, feel free to reach back out to us. Take care and have a great day!

Denise, AT&T Community Specialist
