    Texting *without* a data plan

    OK, this might be a stupid question but is there an easy way to text *without* a data plan on the Galaxy? I have one, but I do not have a data plan and wanted to know if I could use it to txt people on it as well? It seems like I have heard that you can use Google Voice (at least I think it was) to do it. I have never used GV so I do not know how easy it is to set up, and if you can even do what I want to do with it. Is it possible?

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Try free sms (pringo) they also let you select a number too, I like it better than gv because you can send mms too!

    I have a plan with Verizon for my Samsung 10.1 and they assigned the tablet a phone number. There is no texting app that comes with the Samsung. I searched for Handcent but can't find it. I found it when I searched on my Bionic but can't find it with the tablet. Any ideas?

    Thanks
