I have a phone on a prepaid, and would like to be able to text back home will in Cuba next week. Will the International Text Roaming Add-on work on a prepaid plan, and will it work in Cuba?

Hi Debbie,

Only pre-paid roaming add-ons currently available are for the United States, not Cuba.

If you are willing to go through some hoops and limit your texting to when you are connected to wifi (not widely avaialble in Cuba), you can investigate Pinger's TextFree. Provides a temporary dummy US phone number through which you text using data (wifi). No phone voice or text connection required.
