I tried it out & it worked! You have to say your message continuously, if you pause she thinks it's the end of the message. I can't see myself using it very often, but if your hands busy, wet , dirty, etc & you need to send a short text, it comes in handy.  :)

Your sent message doesn't show up on your phone since it's sent by AT&T, but you do receive the reply on your phone.
