    How do I tell how many text messages I have left for the month?

    I thought I remembered seeing a post where you could send a message somewhere and it would reply with how many text messages you have left for the month. I used to be able to find it out under tzones, but I cant anymore.

    thanks

    This tells you how many you've used though, I believe (which obviously will tell you how many you have left by doing the math).

    Do you have any $5 400 SMS/MMS messaging plans added? If you have no plans added to your account, you will not see anything for used or remaining, everything will say additional, if you have no messaging packages.

    Also, International texts are also counted separately, good feature.

    You probably have 6 left, but you can call 611 and ask for clarification.

    I have the unlimited internet plan with VPN at 19.99. Would that affect it any?

    The unlimited vpn internet plan to my knowledge has nothing to do with text messaging.I would guess that if you don't have a messaging bundle,then that explains it.When I do #674#,I get the current total number as of a specific time and how many remaining,similar to the #646# for checking minutes used...

    I would call customer care,perhaps they might be able to shed some light.

    Nice.
    I love all my phones but what happens when they get too old to be 'cool' anymore?
    Does my desk drawer become the retirement home?
