Just bought this phone, Unlimited texting didn't work??

I bought a Samsung Illusion last night for $100 bucks. I also bought a $20 unlimited texting card to go with it. Got home. Activated it. Entered my card number in. (as you have to give a payment to active) and was done. Found out soon after that im getting calls, and that i don't have unlimited texting. It just entered it as $20 in to my account? This is a prepaid phone. And my phone before this was a verizon prepiad phone. It took the $20 as unlimited texting no problem? Is there something i did wrong? I was thinking maybe the activation payment has to be money so they didnt add unlimited texting the first time? if so ill just go buy another unlimited texting card and be done. but i dont want too if its not going to work...

Samsung Illusion is only compatible with the $80 Unlimited plan. The $20 messaging bundle is not available with smartphones only with Basic phones, like flip or slider phones. So your phone is probably operating off of the Basic plan (at $0.25/min and $0.20/text) as of now since the full $80 has not been replenished.

Not applicable

Yep it's pretty clearly stated that the Illusion will ONLY work with the $80 plan.
