    If I have unlimited data, I thought Hangouts would send texts using data and not count against text limits. In the app My Verizon, every time I send or receive a text, the count continues to climb.

    I must not understand how to configure some setting.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    As far as I know, that's never been the case.

    I think the only way you can send texts and not have it count against your texting plan is to setup a Google Voice number, which is free and can be used with hangouts.
