SMS over data?
In the settings menu, under SMS does changing the "message sent under" option from GSM to GPRS or GPRS Preferred send the text messages over data rather than as a text?
Also, does anyone know the difference between GPRS and GPRS Preferred?

To the first question, you can change this setting, but if your carrier does not support it, your SMS messages will not be sent, and you'll likely get an error on them in your message list.
As well, even if it does work, you can be sure that you will still pay for the full SMS charge as indicated by your price plan.
As for the "preferred", I believe it is a preference to set SMS to use GPRS first when available, then GSM as a second choice. But that option really means nothing if your carrier does not support SMS over GPRS.
Again, no matter which you choose, SMS is SMS no matter how it's handled; you will incur SMS charges.
