Heres some more information about Red Pocket. I found something in the Terms Of Service that made me question but she reassured me.
heres the conversation again, might help someone:
Please wait for a site operator to respond...
There is no response from the operator side. Do you want to switch to offline message form?
Operator Myla has joined the chat.

Myla: But I think you should recevie it if you set it up with your Twitter account.
Jon: but would red pocket stop me from using this service?
Myla: We'll have to confirm that yet.
Jon: is there someone you can ask to find out? its kindof silly that they would limit texting. its such a basic thing.
Myla: If you have an email address, I will let you know of the reply to your query.
Jon: thank you.
Jon: are there any other limitations like this i nthe fine print of the terms of service that i should be worried about? being honest with me. lol.
Myla: Okay, you will receive an advice via text when you have reached about 6000 minutes in the 30-day period, and then your account MAY be disconnected when it reaches more than 10000 text messages.
Jon: oh wow, i dont think i've gone over 5000. lol. so think i should be fine with that. your very informative and helpful, one last small question
Jon: if i were to hit the 2 gig max, would data just stop? what happens?
Myla: You won't be able to connect.
Myla: You may just purchase additional data MB refill as needed. It is available for $10 - 10 MB, and $25 - 25 MB.
Jon: data wise? i'd still be able to call and text though right?
Myla: Yes. Only data features will be affected.
Jon: will the data stop or automatically charge me for more data?
Myla: It will not charge you but just stop.
Jon: ok great.
Jon: i just wanted to be sure. thanks for all your help, again.
Myla: You are always welcome.
