- Use with any AT&T device capable of receiving text messages.

*While Business Messaging can be an effective way to increase worker productivity, it should not be used as the primary or sole method of sending notifications that contain information that is essential to the protection of life or property.
How It Works
AT&T Business Messaging gives application developers the freedom to use SNPP, WCTP, SMTP, or TAP protocols for easy integration with a wide range of notification applications. Messages can also be sent from a smartphone, tablet, or PC.
Business Messaging is easy to set up and use:
- Enable the AT&T Business Messaging feature for recipients’ eligible devices.
- Log in to the AT&T Business Notification Center or point your application to one of the AT&T Business Messaging addresses listed in the Frequently Asked Questions.
- If you want to use the Business Messenger app on an Android smartphone or iOS device, download from your app store.
- When you’re ready, type your message, select recipients, and send.
All notifications sent through the gateway are then processed for delivery. Recipients are quickly validated and messages are sent to workers armed with AT&T Business Messaging-enabled mobile devices.

Adding Business Messaging to your wireless plan
To add AT&T Business Messaging to your wireless plan, contact Customer Care at 800.331.0500 or dial 611 from your wireless device (within the domestic U.S.). Ask the representative to add the Business Messaging service to your plan. (Subject to eligibility.)
You can choose from our individual pricing plans or our bulk pricing plans. Additional charges, restrictions, and terms and conditions apply for frame relay and VPN connectivity. Contact an AT&T representative or visit wireless.att.com/business for details. See important information.
Individual Pricing Plans
The most common way of deploying Business Messaging is by adding an individual feature to each AT&T recipient’s account. Basic access can be added at a low cost per month and can be combined with any AT&T text messaging plan. Messaging bundles are another option to meet each recipient’s specific messaging needs. See important information.
Bulk Pricing Plans
Unlike individual pricing options, bulk pricing for corporate customers lets you purchase your entire Business Messaging service on a single account rather than purchasing separately for individual accounts. With licenses ranging from one seat through more than 4,000, Bulk Pricing allows you to provision any phone number or tablet with Business Messaging. Thus, even if your employees or contractors pay their own monthly phone bill, you can still include their phone numbers or tablets on your list of recipients. An administrative website is provided to manage the phone numbers and tablets, giving you centralized control and the flexibility to add and remove phone numbers and tablets from the list of recipients to keep up with a changing staff environment.
