I have to turn 3G on to send/ receive simple texts when not connected to wifi. This is ridiculous and I incur extra charges. Any ideas?

Thats because you are sending messages via imessage. If you would like to send regular sms (no data or wifi connection required) go to settings>messages>turn imessage off. :)
