    no you can't as when u buy a phone it has the capability to send and recieve text you need to get a provider to hook you up with that option...maybe get a pager device that has that option, check with rogers for the blackberry's or bell pagers."

    As far as I know all you can do with a cell phone without service is dial 911... Even with service, I don't think there's any provider that doesn't charge for it separately.
