My wife and I both have androids (she has the Eris), and we carried over our texting plan from our previous phones. We are each on the $10/month plan, which includes 500 messages AND unlimited within Verizon. I would say 90% of the people we text are on Verizon, so we never come close to using the 500 allotted for anyone non-verizon. It's a nice step down from the unlimited packages, because we essentially get unlimited with a reasonable allowance for a handful of people.
I also agree with those talking about the convenience behind texting. I almost always get a response immediately, and it's great for quick questions or comments. My wife and I use it all the time when planning dinner, or for quick questions during the day. I can't always step away from my desk to take a personal call, but I can usually make a discreet text, and this tends to be the case for everyone I know.

Yeah, I had the 450 Voice and 250 Texts (for $5) plan first when I got my Droid. Then I switched to the 450 Voice and Unlimited Texts over three weeks ago (I was texting a lot more now for some reason). Now, I might change it again to a family plan of 700 Voice and Unlimited Texts. Change, change, change...it's inevitable. LOL
Wow I have the 700 min/unlimited tex I probably use about 50 min/month and the rest my wife uses it. I most use ove 3k tex a month in the other hand my wife uses maybe 500 tex a month. I'm at work 50 hours a week there is no way for me to be on the phone talking so texing is quick and discreet.

I use texting while at work. While we aren't supposed to be on our phones while at work, but even the big boss does. there are points when we send text to coworkers, who aren't at work to ask them questions that need to be answered right away. Much easier then being tied up waiting on a phone call or stuck on the phone.
