Is there a way to add texting to the Xoom FE?  And if so, how can I get a step by step as to do it?

I recommend you install google voice from the market and activate the service on your google/gmail account. It is free and works well.

I use the Google voice method described by dgrbovic and it works great.

It's really going to be your best option for any tablet that doesn't have built in 3G to link to a cell network.

The other method I've used it to log into AOL Instant Messenger using a client like Trillian.  AIM allows you to IM to mobile numbers and will send SMS txt messages to the destination.  When they reply it comes back to the IM session you have going.

Thank you so much for the texting tips. I'll probably start with AIM, though I'm not sure yet what Trillian is. I really appreciate your getting back to me.
