When your contact accesses the Connect Me app on their tablet they will see new Text Connect messages, and they can respond to you immediately, as long as there is a remaining balance in your Text Connect package (they will get a message indicating they are blocked from further texting if there’s no remaining balance). If your loved one is not on the tablet when you send a message, don’t worry – there will be a notification of your message on the tablet, and it will also be visible in the Connect Me app.
