    Tracfone LG840G - Wifi

    According to my phone, the WIFI is connected but .30 is being deducted from my minutes each time I send/receive a message. Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong.

    Thanks!!

    Text messages (SMS) and picture messages (MMS) don't travel on WiFi. They deduct from your minutes. Always.

    What you could do is get on gmail while on a WiFi connection and text through Google voice, if that's still possible.

    I know it is possible to send a text for free with Google Voice, but can you receive a text for free? What if the sender only knows the LG 840 phone number but not the Google Voice number?

    Thanks for the replies! I'll check out google. I don't send or receive a lot of text messages.
