Good morning Patsyhildy,
I can certainly show you how to send text messages!
From the home screen, at the bottom will be a message icon. This is the app used to send and receive text messages. By tapping on it, it will open and you can create a new message by tapping on the plus icon.
Please visit the Device Support Tool here: https://att.com/devicehowto for tutorials on just about everything on your device. Please be sure to select the make and model first once you’ve reached the website!
Have a great day.
Adrian, AT&T Community Specialist
