    :eek: Have a Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.. The Unit came with No Operating Manual per say.. The Objective is to Send Text Messages.. The Routine is fine right up to Clicking the Desired Recepient and then Sending.. Tried going on YouTube but YT thinks I'm saying Testing not Texting...Ideas Appreciated Thanks..

    Texting's actual term is SMS. Do you have an SMS app installed, google messenger, textra, etc?

    What is the app provided by the cell phone? How did you send texts before?

    You don't need a WiFi connection but you do need a texting plan on your account.

    All I can Tell You is, I have Unlimited Texting with my Carrier.. So I can only Assume when the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua was Activated and the Nano Card Installed.. Whichever App the Carrier Uses.. (???)

    This is the texting app on your device. I'm not sure I'm following the exact issue you are having.

    Thanks For The Comeback... This Cellphone obviously is Setup Differently than my Previous C-Phone.. Like taking Baby Steps with a New Toy...lol.. @Miller6389.. Yes that is the icon app, we discovered what we were doing wrong to cause the Hic Up if you will.. Was Composing my Text in the Wrong Slot.. Once I got myself straightened around.. And the Send Arrow Lite Up, All is Good, Cheers Thanks
