    Default Can I send a text to a number not in my contact list?

    One online suggestion was to call the number, then it would be in your recent calls list. I don't want to put the number in my contact list, nor do I want to place a call first. Do I have to put the number in my contact list in order to text?

    I don't think so. I have texted numbers before that aren't in my contact list, and haven't had any problems.
