I have an unlimited tablet account. I have unlimited text. I can only text through iMessage. So I can only send/receive with Apple devices. Is that my only option? Doesn't seem unlimited to me. How do Android tablets accomplish it?

    Hello and welcome to the Spectrum Community. For Spectrum Mobile the tablet lines of service are data only. They do not include voice or text capability. So you can use alternative options such as text apps you can download from the app store. These apps use data only and do not require a voice/text plan.

    The only way to text from an iPad without using a third party app would be to link your iPhone number to the device and you can text from the iPad but it would show from the phone number on your iPhone.
