    I am talking about the strange way regular text messages behave over wifi. Text won't sent but pictures will as I assume pictures need data. So I think if you send a picture with text at the bottom you can text over wifi but if it's just text it won't work. I am only talking about native texting apps not alternatives like Google voice or Facebook etc etc

    That's because SMS (pure text) is handled differently than MMS (multimedia) messages.

    Actually, I believe pictures won't send over wifi either... but also need a data plan when using stock messaging apps.

    Well that explains why, when I'm home on wifi (but also with data turned on), most of the time my picture messages won't send unless I switch to iMessage.
