    I'm pretty sure that turning off cellular data just ensures you don't access the internet while on 3G or edge. Useful if you don't have unlimited data and are close to your limit. You can still use wifi all you want. It shouldn't affect call quality or speed of text messaging because you are still using 3G or edge.

    I have 3 phones on the family plan without data and they're capable of sending and receiving texts.
