I think ChatGPT agrees with you:

txt.att.net is a domain owned by AT&T, a large American telecommunications
company. It is typically used to send and receive text messages, and it is
generally considered a reliable resource for this purpose. However, as with
any online service, it is possible for issues to arise, such as delays in
delivery or errors in sending messages. It is also worth noting that
txt.att.net is a free service, so it might not have the same level of
security or reliability as a paid service. If you have any specific
concerns or experience issues with txt.att.net, it's best to contact AT&T
customer service for assistance.


Warm regards,
