How do I text with a flip phone?

OK, I'm well past my plan expiration date... and have opted to keep my Samsung Convoy 2 flip phone up to now.  Seems like I'm surrounded by friends and family members wanting to exchange texts with me, so tonight I "took the plunge" and added texting (1000) to my plan for another $10 monthly.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to make use of this new-found capability?  I looked through Verizon's tutorials, and didn't find my phone (or any basic phone) listed.  I hope this doesn't mean that I can't text without changing phones!  Can someone offer me some enlightenment?  Thanks.

There are two methods of texting using a standard phone keypad, T9 and multi-tap.  Each takes a bit of gettingused to, but both are very workable.  When I had a basic phone, I initially went with multi-tap, but quickly switched to T9.  For me, it was much faster.  My sister, on the other hand, still has her basic phone,and still uses multi-tap.  Whatever works...
