I have one of the older plans (Ontario, $55, 2GB, Unl. min., etc) and I was told to hang onto it as long as I could because new plans don't include texting to the US from Canada. I'm considering upgrading to a Galaxy S8+ on a tab large because I don't want to spend a lot of extra up-front and I want to have a 10GB plan. Though, if texting to the USA is going to be extra, I might have to rethink that stance as I text friends and family in the US quite a lot. So if someone could give me a straightforward answer to this, I would be most appreciative. Thank you so much in advance.
