Re: No Other Option But Unlimited Messaging???

A few months ago I canceled my unlimited texting plan to opt into the Messaging Pay Per Use plan as I use something like 5 text messages a month.  After canceling the unlimited plan I couldn't send or receive any texts.  Do you know why that would be?  Are there any types of messages - SMS/MMS/picture/IM/whatever types of messages that I wouldn't be able to recieve on this text messagin plan, or is there anything else special I would have to do?  This was on my iPhone.

Ask a moderator to move your post to the iPhone section of the forum.  If you are using an iPhone that has iMessage(?), I think that there is a setting that will only allow other iMessages to come in, and not traditional text messages.  The other people on that forum are more familiar with this and can give you suggestions.

there is a setting in imessage that will allow you to turn off regular texting and just send it tthough imessage, there are limitations - imessage will only send to other iphones with imessage you will not be able to text anyone that does not have a iphone with the imessage app on it

 

The setting is in the Imessage configuration panel under settings
