Roaming isn't available for prepaid. Sorry. She will have to use WiFi and use an internet based messaging app like WhatsApp or BBM or she could unlock her phone and use a prepaid SIM down there with T Mobile or Cricket.

Jonathan is totally right, but if the phone is unlocked a prepaid SIM in the US will be super cheap. Tell her to go to any corner store and pick up a SIM that allows texting/voice/data for like $30 for the duration of her stay. The prices are literally 1/3rd of what they are in Canada... :/
