Hey, I only read down the first page of replies, but does this enable use of YOUR Verizon assigned number for SMSing? aka, I don't want to have to tell 200 people that I've got a new SMS number. I am aware you need an SMS app, I use Hancent, but my primary goal is to be able to use my current Verizon #.
I'll keep reading replies until I either find an answer or reach this post.
Edit: Okay, 23 pages later, it appears that, from a few complaints from users regarding SMS charges, that it sounds like SMS works with their assigned Verizon number. I think the key here is to convince Verizon to leave an SMS plan on your Xoom's line even though the customer support rep is under the impression that it's not compatible ;p It obviously IS compatible or people wouldn't be getting charged for texts.
