Is it possible for me to get a text from an international number when that party is in Canada?  I am picking someone up at an airport and we agreed she would text me when she clears customs.  How can I make sure that I am going to be able to receive that text so we can hook up at the arrivals level?

Hi,
It is hard to confirm. But there are few things your friend could check if she could text in Canada:
- Her phone is compatible with one of 3 major carriers in Canada.
- Her phone plan in China allows her to connect to the Canadian networks (roaming).

I would suggest you ask your friend contact her carrier in China, and ask about Roaming in Canada.

The other way is to ask her to call you when she arrives, there are paid phones inside terminals.
