Took me a while to figure out that I had to use iTunes each time (no dragging and dropping like I'm used to with my other devices), but a teenager will have NO problem with that lol.
You can use email, yes, you're right. But the kids like to use it for texting.

I got one for Christmas and it's got the 'FaceTime' app which lets you see (and be seen) with
the person you're texting.
Absolutely! They are completely different things - not the least of which being the fact that text messages go to cell NUMBERS, emails go to email ADDRESSES.
As Cycloptichorn says, you can send a text to someone's non-smart phone (smart phones can receive emails, too).
But mostly it's a mode thing. For whatever combination of reasons, kids like texting.
The colored bubbles, the brevity, dunno.
