The inbox is where you receive and reply to incoming messages, and you can initiate messages to individual contacts that you have not messaged before.
Sending a Message
In order to start a conversation with a single contact, click the “New” blue button and type the phone number into the field with the blinking cursor, "Name or Phone Number...".
Type your message into the message box at the bottom of the page, labeled "Your message..." and click Send SMS.
Voila! You have successfully sent your text message! 💬
(Please note: you can send regular SMS messages with or without an emoji from the inbox. Depending on the number of characters, this may be a 1 or 2 credit message. Currently, you cannot send inline images (MMS) through the inbox.)
A notification will appear next to your Inbox icon when you have a new incoming message.
