    I don't really use text messages, so I wouldn't need to pay for a lot of text messages...but when you use Google Talk or AIM or any of those things on the phone, does Verizon consider those as text messages...or is that all just part of the data plan?

    I normally wouldn't worry about paying for text messages since I hardly use them, but I do use instant messaging a bit more and wouldn't want to be charged 20 cents for every instant message that gets sent/received.

    Back in the day (on Symbian phones) some of these programs consumed text messages, but all of the programs you can get on Android should be using data.
