    Free texting app?

    Are there any apps for Droid Eris that act as a free way to text? I still can't believe I have to pay to text someone especially when I pay for an unlimited data plan. Didn't know if such a thing existed, just checking, thanks.

    I was under the impression the "internet" data plan and texting were separate. Maybe I am mistaken?

    I just checked, and I have a "Smartpack" plan, so maybe that's why.

    My text plan is 500 "any" texts + unlimited "IN" (m2m) texting....

    I don't have a need for an unlimited plan as I use Google Voice for those who text me most, but aren't part of the "IN" plan.

    I don't have a text plan and every one is charged at 20 cents - doesn't take long for that to add up! I don't send many texts, but the additional fees were annoying.

    I had texting disabled so I can't send or receive through the text part of the system and I have Google Voice set up to take care of it. Result: No hidden charges and full texting capabilities.

    Hmm, never heard of that. I have one of the lower voice plans (450 mins) and the lower web/email plan ($30), never had this issue. I probably send 120 txt's (or lower) in a month. When I check my VZW account, it says I have unlimited texts.

    I guess you've had it a while as currently, all text plans are extra.
