    Verizon hops onboard the Cloud Texting bandwagon

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1OGTZtDnEco This might have taken over if they did this 3 or 4 years ago. But with Apple strong arming iMessage in iOS devices, and Google soon to unite all of their chat services under one umbrella, I doubt this will get far.
