8130 could send a text mesage to Email using NO DATA ?

Hi All

I recently lost my old 8130 Pearl. Bought a 9320 to replace it only to find that the this new phone will not send an "text" message as an email using No Data !   Small detail.. I know,  but very  convenient.  That phone was on the most basic voice & text plan with no data. How come the 8130 could send a text message to  a email  using no data?  and what is this feature called.  Is there another Blackberry phone that have this capability?


Thank you
