Why is Wifi Texting Not Working?
Text messaging over a cellular network is different from texting over an internet service, such as WhatsApp or iMessage. With cellular text messaging, the recipient’s phone company delivers the text message to their phone. With internet-based texting, the message goes through an internet server before it reaches the person you’re sending it to.
So why doesn’t WiFi texting work? When you send a text message over a cellular network, your phone company uses what’s called SMS (Short Message Service) to deliver your text. Unfortunately, SMS only works with cell phones connected to a cellular network – it can’t send texts to phones connected to the internet via WiFi.
That means if you’re trying to send a text message to someone who only has a WiFi connection – for example, if they’re travelling overseas and don’t have access to a cellular network – your text will never reach them. The same goes for texts sent from devices that only have a WiFi connection, like tablets or laptops. If you need to guarantee that your text message will be delivered, even if the recipient only has a WiFi connection, you’ll need to use an app like WhatsApp or iMessage that uses an internet server instead of SMS.
Can You Get Text Messages Using Wifi?
Yes, you can get text messages using WiFi. This is because WiFi allows you to connect to the internet and use data services. Once you are connected to the internet, you can use any number of messaging apps that allow you to send and receive text messages.
