The wife and I both got Droid A855's this past week through Verizon. Been loving the phone (slightly overwhelmed) but confused on one thing. We specifically asked the sales person (@ Walmart) if the $29.99 data package included text messaging and we were told it does. Now I'm not so sure, can anyone clarify? We don't anticipate texting very much but it would be nice not to have to worry about getting dinged for every little message my friends send. I have emailed Verizon and I'm waiting to hear back but thought this might be faster. Thanks and I'm sure I will have a ton of questions and lurk a lot.
