Spanky: Trouble is, the only cell phone we have is an inexpensive prepaid phone which does NOT have texting. How can I set up our new iPod if we do not have texting available?

You have no texting? No texting at all? Do you realize this is Un-American? There was once a House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) for investigating commies and other troublemakers like you, but its responsibilities were taken over by Homeland Security in 2002. Rest assured, the NSA has already sent an inter-agency notification to Homeland Security about your case. You can expect a knock on your door at 3:00am tonight, and by morning they will have foreclosed on your mind. It was nice to have known you.

Seriously, though, even the cheapest flip-phones have text messaging these days. Mine does, and it cost only $15 new. Double-check the specs of your prepaid phone on the web -- it is very likely that it actually has text messaging but you just didn't realize it.
