texting on the netbook is just another internet activity and falls within the 5GB limit.  That doesn't mean you can text for free from your cell phone!  :smileyhappy:

If you are utilizing VZAM for text messaging then you will need a text messaging plan or you will pay 20 cents per text message sent/received.  A messenger program (Yahoo, AOL, etc.) falls under your 5GB. plan.
