US text addon

My texting doesn't seem to be working in the US after purchasing the add-on.  My airplane mode is on because I don't want to use my data.

@susellin   you cannot turn on Airplane mode.  Enabling Airplane mode disable all the connections.  If you don't want you use your data, you turn off Mobile data and you disable Roaming Data

 

You need to turn off Airplane mode and manually select either T-Mobile or AT&T

@susellin , airplane mode disconnects your phone from the network.  So you won't be able to text.  What you need to do to preserve data is to disable roaming data.  Note that this will allow SMS but will block MMS.  MMS uses unmetered mobile data.

So disable roaming and turn off airplane mode?

@susellin   Yes, Disable Airplane mode

Best is to to go Mobile Data and turn it off

@susellin   if you don't need data , turn it off completely 

 

iOS:

To turn Cellular Data on or off, go to Settings > Cellular. 

Turn off Cellular Data by swiping the switch with that label to the left.

 

Android:
1 Swipe down from the screen to reveal the Quick panel.
2 Tap the Mobile data icon to deactivate. .

 

or...

..
1 Go to "Settings", then tap "Connections".
2 Tap "Data usage".
3 Tap the switch to activate or deactivate "Mobile data".

Ok, thanks.  I also don't see a US mobile network.  Shouldn't there be one displayed?

@susellin   Make sure Airplane mode is really disabled

 

then change the Network selection from Automatic to Manual

 

if still not see any network, try reboot your phone.
