The SMS Text Application lets you send text messages to other phones and connected devices that support SMS.
The main SMS Text screen shows your recent conversations. You can use the Edit button to delete conversations. You can also swipe left to right across the listing with your finger and press the Delete button that appears.
To start a new conversation, press the pencil-in-box button at the upper right.
Enter a phone number, or use the + button to select one from your address book. Then click on the small text area next to the Send button to enter your message. Press the Send button to send.
Once a conversation has started, or if you select an old conversation, you will see a list of messages along with some buttons. You can press the Call button at any time to call the person you are conversing with. You can press the Contact Info button to see their listing in your Address Book.
The rest of the screen shows your conversation, with your messages to the right, and the other person’s messages to the left. You can send a new message using the text area and the Send button at the bottom of the screen. You can also use the Clear button to clear out the old messages.
