Texting to a different province

My friend is going on vacation to Manitoba and I live in Alberta, can I still text them without it costing money because I have unlimited texting?

Depending on where your friend is travelling to in Manitoba, s/he may have to get a compatible CDMA phone first and switch the phone over to that, as LTE is very limited in Manitoba with Bell & Telus. I believe Rogers is still fine. Alternatively, if they are going to be around WiFi hot-spots often, then they may want to consider one of the messaging apps. What good is texting your friend, if they can't get your message or text you back 🙂
