A. A message will pop up to alert you that you are receiving a call or message and you will then have the option to accept or ignore it.

A. Everything you need to watch your favorite programs is on your AT&T Mobile TV device. Simply press the TV button on your phone and the AT&T Mobile TV service will launch.
