So I pay 20$ a month to att for unlimited texting. Most of my texts go through iMessage now and the other < 300 texts I send a month are sent via my carrier.

My question is what is the best text app that will make it so I don't have to pay for texting at all? I want to drop my 20$ unlimited texting plan and use a third party app that still uses my real phone number. However when I search for apps and such they all look like scams or something alone those lines.

Any suggestions?

If you're with AT&T look into that voice and messaging plan. They have\had one that was X minutes of voice a month and UNLIMITED text!

I use WhatsApp...it is .99 but well worth it, uses your actual phone #, can still send pics/video/voicenotes and its quick like BBM was before I converted! ;)

iMessage for your friends with iPhones, iPods and iPads and probably Google Talk/Voice for the rest.

When you port your phone through google voice it uses your real number for texts? Are you still charged text message fees by your carrier? Or is it all done over data?

As far as I know, porting your real number will make it use your real number for texts as well. Texts made with google voice are done over data
