    Hi.

    Quick question. I realized i am using more SMSs then I thought I would and was wondering if I can tell how many I sent (and i guess received since I (may?) be charged for those too?)

    Is there some option on the iphone that shows me this?

    I have the basic ATT iphone plan. (new customer.)

    Thanks

    Dial *DATA# in the keypad and press Call. You'll receive an SMS from AT&T.

    For more of these: click here. There's also some in Settings -> Phone -> AT&T Services

    And, finally, you can also view all this information at https://www.wireless.att.com/olam/dashboardAction.olamexecute, or Settings -> Phone -> AT&T Services -> AT&T MyAccount. You need to register if it's your first time viewing the site)

    Cool, I never knew about *data#! I used to use it all the time when I was with verizon. I didn't see it in the att services menu when I first went through the phone, so I assumed it wasn't available.

    Existing ATT customers who changed plans seem to get that message.

    It means you should get the Lube out. :eek:

    Does that data text sent from AT&T count as part of your text totals, or is that considered a system message?

    Also something i just want to mention...in the past when you switch to a new data plan AT&T/Cingular usually gave u unlimited data for the first month just to get you all excited that way the next month you end up going over. I don't know if this sticks with the iPhone Data plan but it is possible. So text away i guess?!:D
