    Get the word out, any way you like

    200 text, picture, video, and Instant Messaging (IM) messages per month. Additional messages are 10 cents each.

    Text messaging

    * Private, to-the-point communication
    * Just type the message, pick a wireless phone number, and send


    Picture and video messaging

    * Share a smile, a cute moment, or that thing you just have to buy
    * Snap the photo or video with your camera phone, pick a mobile phone or email address, and send


    Instant Messaging

    * Chat real-time with IM on your phone
    * Use AOL® Instant Messenger, Yahoo!®, and Windows Live Messenger®

    So I could only send 200 instant messages?

    Doesn't aim/yahoo/msn use data or wifi?

    I'm pretty sure "AIM to AIM" doesn't take a hit on your texts, since you'd technically only be using their servers to transfer the data. But if you were to AIM a phone in the form of a text then texts might Apply.

    I'm really not 100% sure on the technicals of it, but logic is telling me that using AIM to AIM or whatever IM service wouldn't count on your texts.

    If you are talking about on the iPhone - if you use an app it should be data/wifi.

    However, some AT&T phones are set up to work with those messaging networks despite being a "dumb" phone - the notes about IMing would apply to those phones.
