only thing about keeping the iphone is that we have to keep the data plan, but i guess what you're saying is that i could cancel the texting part of the plan but then that would do away with texting on my phone since we are on the same plan... what a pickle...

Barring that, if she only texts to other iPhone users, the upcoming iOS 5 will have a new iMessage feature that texts over the data channel to other iPhones running iOS 5. If that's the case (a big IF, I know), then you can do the same… kill the texting plan.

The only other suggestion is to go to an AT&T store (assuming you are in the US) and see what they have to offer and see if something else will fit the bill.
