    It just showed up on my account today (or in the last few days since I've checked). See pic below. I don't IM or have any messaging programs at all on my phone. Thanks :)

    Not sure, but the same started appearing on my account too.

    I can only speculate, but I'm guessing this may be AT&T getting ready for MMS.

    You said you have no messaging plans.

    How come it says Used XXX/Unlimited?

    Does it always say unlimited?

    Does this show up on your account at at&t wireless website? I couldn't find anything like that for mine. I deleted the AT&T app, since it didn't tell me enough information.

    I said I don't have any instant messaging programs not texting plans. I was trying to clarify so that people didn't think it was a messaging program I downloaded :)

    I doubt its MMS cause it would say 0 messages.

    I think what might've happened is that the MMS optout was removed from our account. So every message we sent AFTER that code was removed has been put in the integrated messages category (ie mms and sms together). And everything from before is still in the texting category. Just my guess :)

    i just got off the phone with att she said it might be vvm but it says i used 37 out of 200 so it cant be that since theres no cap to voicemail. also the lady had absolutly no clue what i was talking about. the att csr are so dumb in my opinion sshe also said there is no release date for mms so there u go

    if the opt-out has been removed, then MMS should be working. which it isn't, for me at least.

    I had to wait til I could get home and get all of my name and information off the screenshot, sorry :D Ok, yes, as in the screenshot below, there are 2 seperate messaging titles in my online account but these 2 are called messaging and texting.

    No, no, that's just my speculation. I didn't call or anything. I was just guessing. Since it's nothing I did or signed up for, it has to be on their end right?

    Oh that's true, and mine isn't either I just checked :(

    Hmm. That could be. But I've only had AT&T since May, so I don't think I've sent or received that many. But good thought, and it still could be!

    Grrrrrr! But thanks for trying! :)

    I think so too! I think you're right- they're doing something that is causing this change just maybe not the whole hooopla yet. At least we have a step! :)
