3) With "Airplane Mode" on, texts do not send.

4) With "Airplane Mode" on and Wifi turned ON, texts do not send. Evidence that regular texts will not send over Wifi. However, Google Voice texts (that solely rely on data) do send.

Based on this, I'm pretty sure SMS is transmitted by 1xRTT only.
1xRTT is 3G, I think that you meant 2G.

We all agree, sms doesn't rely on 3G or wifi, appreciate the testing.
