AIM/Google Chat count as text message?

You guys are crazy, I have texting completely disabled, and my messaging apps still work perfectly fine :D
directly from viperboy, thanks!

"Those apps will all use data. The only thing that would use a text is if you had AIM set to forward messages to you (They come as texts) when you aren't online. But all of those should be data. Enjoy!"

Just as I thought, it didn't make sense for an app like IM+ to eat up into your texting. It connects to the internet(data), then you can start messaging. Knew something was wrong
