You must be connected to either WiFi or cellular to send or receive text messages. Text messages are free with either WiFi or cellular.
How does free texting work without wifi or cellular
It says I can send and receive text even if I'm not connected to wifi or Sprint. Is this true and how does it work?

It doesn't say that. If you are not connected to wifi you can still send texts even if you do not have a cellular pass.
Yes. You can still text for free when you are not connected to WiFi. But you still need to be connected to cellular to send and receive texts.
Here is a good official answer.
Thats right! It says whenever you are away from wifi...it is understood that it works even without cel service! Thats false advertising!
