    I have both installed on my phone.

    I am attempting to get textfree to stay active so that it will notify me when I receive a new text. I have it set to always background under the backgrounder preferences.

    I can't really tell if this is working well or not. Has anyone else been able to get this combination to work with satisfactory results?

    I will say this about textfree, if it gets push support with the 3.X software, it will be THE KILLER APP on iphone. $6 price to forever never have to get bent over by AT$T for text charges :D

    Push would be nice. But I don't think your going to get any kind of alerts using backgrounder.

    Anybody out there tried this method with any kind of satisfactory success?

    I called AT$T yesterday and told them where they could put their $30 month text message plan. And I LIKE textfree-I just DON'T like the fact that it doesn't tell you directly when you have a new text message.

    I believe Pinger will release an update of Textfree to take advantage of the push API very soon (hopefully the day 3.0 is released)!

    I am very excited.

    I really hope you are correct. I sort of bought textfree assuming it would get push support when 3.0 came out.

    I believe this will be the killer app for iPhone if it does get push. No more $30 text plan :D

    read the comments in this review of textfree. there is a textfree rep answering questions. from what she says, push is definitely coming to 3.0. the only question is WHEN? and she talks about a new update that will arrive soon allowing your friends to text you somehow without requiring them to reply to your text, which I am assuming is a way for them to actually INITIATE the text message conversation.
