Mobile data on usage detail for texts

My bill shows mobile data on my usage detail under text messages. I was told that is for 3rd party app messages like fb messenger or yahoo messenger. Is that the only reason that would be on there?

What you are seeing is ‘short code’ text from a computer.  It is usually a notification.  Bank, 2 step verification, pharmacy, Amazon, etc.

Late reply...sorry about not seeing post earlier.

mobile data = data used on apps and service on your phone.  It has no number, because it was not calls or text to anyone else. 

What content used your data is in the settings on your phone, under data usage.

It’s from streaming music in my case.  I listen to amazon music and I have data usage of exactly 46080kb at all the times I was streaming music.
