After paying for more minutes than I need, data plan and text plans for family members, my Verizon bill is jacked. Is there a way receive text messages sent to my phone number using another app. I don't want anyone's proprietary system unless it can send and receive texts for free at my cell phone number. I am trying to save the $5/month for 250 texts, but if I don't pay it, I get hit up for a quarter every time someone sends me a text. I love text, but I use less than 100/month.
I will post a followup question about battery life and processor consumption on a second post, cause I love points.
