Got something to say? To send a text, on Start , select Messaging , and then New message . Enter a phone number or contact, type your message, and then select Send . Messaging and cellular data rates may apply.
If you type a message and don’t send it, it’ll be saved as a draft. You’ll see it in Messaging > Conversations.
If your mobile operator offers a chat service, your messages to certain contacts may be sent using that service, and you’ll see chat instead of text in your Messaging app. If you expect to see chat but don’t, look under Messaging settings to make sure it’s turned on.
