Text plan still needed on smart phone?

I'm looking at upgrading to a smartphone in the near future but am wondering if I need to maintain my text plan in addition to the data plan the smartphone requires.  Anyone have any clue about that?  Thanks for your help.

Yes you do, texting and internet are 2 separate things.  Mary

if you go with an android platform phone, you can text for free using google voice. but you have to use your google voice number, not your standard cellular number. ive been using it for about a month and a half now and it works great. you can even see your texts online through your google account as well as send and recieve from your computer.
