I upgraded my phone to an old I phone, but my plan does not have data. Now texts from my husbands i phone will not come through until I am hooked to wi fi. With my old phone they would come as a normal text. Is there anything I can do. I don't want to change my plan as it is the old one with better calling and textiing.

This is normal behaviour. Apple iMessages are transferred on a data link, either Wi-Fi or cellular. If you turn off iMessages in Settings, and you both have your phones set to Send as SMS when iMessage is not Available, you should start receiving SMS instead of iMessages.
