No, the message service just syncs your text message to the messenger app!

thanks, that's good, but if I don't use Data, which I don't, will I still receive the messages if I am not connected to Wifi? Or does it only syn when I am connected.
Not sure why I find this confusing :)

I was thinking that if I don't, is there a benefit to having this feature activated?
THanks again

I have no ideo TBH, I think soYou could give it a try by sending you ma own message through http://koodomobile.com/en/on/sendames...

And IMO, I don't think you should keep it active. The less places my private text messages are, the better. Especially with facebook, Don't they have enough information already?

Oh, I didn't realize that my text messages would also sync with FB, I only thought to activate this because there are a couple people I communicate through FB only, but I am not going to pay for a Data plan, I really have no need for one at this point
