Want to disable "your gophone balance is" text messages

I have a $10/month GoPhone plan.  Every time I complete a call, or send/receive a text, I get a text message from AT&T which says, "Your GoPhone balance is $XX.XX."  These messages are unnecessary, distracting, and (above all) annoying. Can I turn them off?

Can't receive images via SMS using WiFi calling

When I'm at home, I can't get a signal with my Galaxy Note 8. That's the whole reason I got this phone - no service with AT&T at home. Now, I can make and receive phone calls at home using WiFi calling, but texting is sketchy at best. Pictures, in particular, won't ever download while I'm at home.
