Now, maybe you're talking about WiFi only, with Mobile turned off? You won't get text messages on your phone's number, but you can use Google Voice to send/receive texts via WiFi only. It'll require using a different phone number, but it's pretty easy to set up.
OP, do not listen to this absolute load of misinformation that is quoted!

I use the Hangouts app for texting only, and I am not signed in to any three of my gmail accounts at all, and I am able to send and receive texts. Even when I have wifi and mobile data turned off i can still send and receive text like normal.
