Notifications - General

How are messages delivered to my device?
  • Messages are delivered as notifications to your device.  
  • The notification system is not the same as text messages, and they will not appear in your texting app.
  • The new notification messages are delivered to your notification center on your device.  
  • You may also see them as banners at the top of your screen, and on your lock screen.
