    Google Voice. Get a GV number and texting is FREE.

    If you get a Google Voice number and use the Google Voice app then when you text from that app you will be using your Google Voice number which is not your regular cell number. The texts will come from, and to your Google Voice number.
    In my case I have three different phone numbers on my Droid X. Each are completely separate.

    So Google Voice should be the solution to the issue you posted.

    If you instead simply want to send anonymous text messages there are a variety of them on the web. They are one way only... in other words you can send an anonymous text message, but you would not receive any reply. Google Voice resolves this issue.

    Another alternate is TextFree. It recently became available but is for texting only - unlike GV which you can also use for calls.

    Getting the gv number is easy. Go on the web, search google voice, sign up.

    I just went to the app and was able to text easily to myself and the recieving number is my GV number.

    I would sign up on the site first then register with the app im guessing. I been using it for a month now, I don't remember doing anything special

    I mostly like Handcent. But I can't believe you still have to switch from wifi to data to get pictures/videos. I'm ready to either go back to stock or another 3rd party app.

    What text app do you use? Thoughts?

    On my wife's LG Lucid, pics/videos needed data on Handcent, but came through on wifi with the stock messaging app.
