I see that while in the US, it's $5/100 texts. Are the 100 texts per day, per trip, per billing period?

If I send 80 texts over 5 days, will I be charged $5, or $5 x 5 days?

I'm a bit of a text dummy. Going to Florida will it cost me $5 per 100 per billing period without getting a new SIM card?

Yes, provided you do not use other features of your phone such as calling or data. Remember long text messages will be split into shorter 140 character messages, and you can't send picture messages.

Also provided you're a postpaid customer and not prepaid.
