    textPlus beta

    Drew is right - we're launching textPlus soon - but if you'd like a pre-release beta build - send me your phone number and email to support@gogii.net.

    It's pretty close to release - but any feedback, ideas or observations you have will be helpful.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    This would be a sweet option... problem is I don't have an issue with texts, my girlfriend is the text crazy one. But she has the EnV3 so it wouldn't help her...

    If only there was free sms messaging that allowed you to use your own phone number.

    Google Voice = free text messaging/local-long distance phone calls.

    Nothing beats Google Voice.

    This program doesn't fully work.

    I can send out a message but that person CAN NOT reply back!

    Its free just make sure you set it up properly, otherwise you will still be using your Verizon text messages. There are countless threads on the subject so Im not going to go into detail. Also with google voice, you have to text from your google voice number so the messages wont be from your direct cell number but rather from your assigned GoogleVoice number. Not a big deal for me but may be for some.
