I'm new at this. What is the difference between data and text, if any? I want to use a credit card reader such as "Square" with my phone. Is it considered text or data.

Thanks

Text messages are when you send text messages. Square is not a text messaging application. It uses data. Data is anything to do with the internet.

There is actually no such app in existence that uses "text" to work besides SMS (text messaging) applications. That's not even really possible. What you actually asked doesn't really make sense but I just thought I'd explain it to you for the future.
