    I tried textfree then saw that there is a charge to the users phone if they text you back to iPad. Not so text free.

    "Textfree doesn't have the ability to charge you anything without your permission. The only things that you can purchase from Textfree are in-app purchases, which require your iTunes password to be charged. We have absolutely no way of charging anything to your phone carrier's bill. Remember, however, that if you are using an iPhone,Textfree uses your data connection to work. You may still be charged for data use, depending on what your specific plan."

    If the person your texting has unlimited text which I believe is 10$ bucks through verizon your strait, it would only be your carrier charging u for text if you don't. So it's the carrier charging not text free app

    I use GV Mobile +

    So far, I've sent texts to basic Tracfones, Droids and iPhones. They get charged for the text, but I've not (on wifi). It works on both wifi and 3G (assuming you've got a carrier deal).

    Oh just saw more replies......this is true.....with textfree if the person you are texting to from your iPad has unlimited texting (and who doesn't ) when they reply no one gets charged!!!
