Got the iPhone for wife with 2gb data plan.Do text messages count toward data usage or they are separate and I have to pay per message? Thanks in advance.
Regular text messages do not count toward data usage.
text messages so not require data. imessages do send and receive data. in order for you to use iMessage, the other party needs imessage service as well.--~ FiOS ~ * UltimateHD * QIP7232-2 * 35/35rev.G * iPhone 5 64GB W *
And that's like Gtalk not everyone gonna use those two so id use text message.
