If I can cut out my text messaging plans I can probably get some other services I'd rather have.
So the question is: What alternative options do I have for text messaging? I know all of them have some type of downside, but if it can save me twenty+ dollars per month I'll have to consider it, but hopefully I can get the best option that's closest to regular text messaging.

textfree is nice other than no picture messages

I also use textfree. Have been for almost a year now, its pretty solid, besides the no SMS like the others say.

Another free option is to get a Google Voice number. You can forward incoming texts to your Gmail and reply to them thru your iPhone's mail app.

I use Textnow. Used Textfree before, but I personally prefer Textnow's interface; plus it has picture msgs.
I don't think they give the option of a number, so this is probably better if you're using it mostly with someone else who also uses the app.
