    I saw this come up in another post topic...is texting without a texting plan possible? Someone mentioned that you can text over 3g/wifi. Is this possible and if so how do you do that?

    Thank you.

    I think it would be like any other phone,
    if you dont have a text messaging plan you have to pay for every text you send.

    If you download the AIM client you can use IM instead.

    basically yes u can text with email

    unless you have push you wont receive responses as quick as an sms

    its basically 10digitnumber@whateverprovider.com.net as the outgoing address
    and then write in you msg as you would a regular email.
    SMS however is limited by how many characters you input so be aware of that

    there's a thread over at ilounge

    it's basically the same if you want to send them an MMS from your iphone as well.

    I sent a few friends sms's this way yesterday
