Importing contacts from a spreadsheet to the AT&T Landline Texting web application

Note: To import contacts into the AT&T Landline Texting application, you must use the web version of the application with one of the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Internet Explorer is NOT a compatible browser option for importing contacts. When importing contacts into the application, if the telephone number for the contact is not valid, then the contact does not appear in the list of new contacts. A maximum of 50 contacts can be imported at one time. Options for the message will appear.

  1. Open the contacts spreadsheet.
  2. Copy up to 50 contacts from column D.
