Hey guys, just wondering if there's a way I can do serial communication without using the RX and TX pins. If not maybe I can do it manually on other pins or is that more pain than it's worth?

Check out the SoftwareSerial library.  It does exactly that (it's not perfect, but it works for basic stuff).  Feel free to take a shot at improving it too, I'd be happy to have it cleaned up.  smiley
