    SMS or Simple Message Service is provided by AT&T and not a function of the phone. You access the messages commonly referred to as "texts" by using an app. If it was identified as SMS on the Atrix it would probably be called simply "messages" on the Moto X.

    You can also use 3rd party apps to access your messages. Handcent is very popular.

    If you want to transfer your existing messages from the Atrix to your new phone, install SMS Backup and Restore on BOTH devices. Backup your messages from the Atrix, copy the backup file to the Moto X and restore it.
