i would think you can,  but given the distance between  it may require a stronger signal, or maybe no access to wifi, so it might cost more due to the required data...did that make any sense at all? If you call long distance from your landline you see that the costs are varied from country to country so I am thinking it might be like that for data as well...obviously since I a proving myself to be an idiot who cannot easily put her words together in a way that people can understand what I am talking about I woudnt take my word it it, I would call and ask. lol

What?

A stronger signal has no impact on texting a greater distance. This is not a walkie-talkie. A signal goes to the Tower and from there your sms is relayed through.

I did say that it was just my thinking...I did suggest a phone call though to verify or confirm.....I realize it isnt worded here the way it was in my head which is probably why you are not getting what I am saying......

Hey Sean, you can send texts to other countries with "The Works" plan as long as you are in Canada :) Hope this helps!
