    Ok, I am confused.

    Droid X + Verizon + Unlimited data package = no charge for texts.

    Am I missing something???

    I know my plan has unlimited data, but does NOT include texts..... I don't text that much, so I never bought it, but I may start using google voice for the limited number of texts that I do write/receive

    Ah...my bad. I forgot that the unlimited text is part of the plan and not the data package. Sorry for the confusion.

    I guess you are missing something...or I am. I was told I need to pay $5/ month for 250 txt msgs & I think another amount for unlimited. It sucks that you have to pay for the data pkg ($29) & can't have free texting (unless you get a freebee download).

    How does like Ki and pingchat work?

    Do you need to have a seperate number like google voice?

    Is there a program that will use internet data but route it to your phone, and from your same phone number?
