    Hi everyone. I'm looking at getting a smart phone, but I have a couple questions about Android apps. Specifically, is there an app that lets me send texts via data? Verizon makes me buy a data plan, and if I want unlimited txting, its a different plan. So I end up paying for unlimited txting, AND data. If I can get away without spending the extra 20 a month and just using an app, I'd do that. Anyways, sorry if this question has been answered, I searched and didn't see anything. Thanks in advance!

    The only thing I can think of is getting a Google Voice account. You can only get one, though, via invite.

    If you're a student though it'll be way easier to get one. As long as you have a .edu email address you're good to go.

    Thanks! I'm in school, so my email address is a .edu address. I'll check out voice.

    The problem with this is gvoice can have significant delays at times, and if someone texts your real number, yep your getting charged for the text.

    Btw-sprint includes texting in their data plans =P

    Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
