Texting?

Please pardon my ignorance. I'm rather new and trying to feel out the boundaries of my service and how I can utilize it the best. Having said that, I was trying to stay on the "free" service. Unfortunately I use more texts than are provided (not by a ton but lets say a couple hundred) but I use almost zero data. Is there an app that will allow me to use the data services to send more texts without having to leave the free plan? Thanks for any help someone can provide.

P.S. It doesn't have to be google voice. It can be any app that utilizes the data that I have available. I probably should have asked will whatever you are suggesting have an effect on the freedom pop voice and messaging apps?

    @Headseed use google hangouts and enable sms in the hangouts settings. it will use data instead of talk and txt mins.

    @gezafish does this allow you to send text to anyone's phone? Or does it require them to install hangouts?

    You can send to anyone that can accept SMS. It also won't eat into your text limit. If you are on wifi it won't even count against your data.
