    I just got an HTC Incredible through Verizon yesterday and was wondering if this is at all possible: Verizon charges for everything, and they charge a lot. I've got the data plan and would like to be able to 1) use the data plan to send/receive texts and 2) be able to do wifi tethering. I'd like to do both of these without paying for additional texting plans and wifi plans. Is this possible or am I sh*t outta luck and just have to suck it up and pay for these features?

    I just really feel that with the prices that Verizon is charging, these 2 things should be included in the data package... Any insight is appreciated.

    You can't get free texting thru your verizon number, but you can sign up for google voice, and get free texting on your phone with your google voice number (along with a great voice mail with lots of features and plenty of other features).
