If you have a postpaid/monthly plan, don't switch your plan to "Seasonal hold".
Add an  "International Voice Roaming" add-on ($0) through self serve to activate  receiving text.

Pay-Per-Use rates will apply if you send text(s) and/or make/receive calls from outside Canada If you don't have any Roaming add-on.

If I'm not mistaken, incoming texts will be free...?

It's not listed on the link :(


There used to be a pay per use map to tell you the pay per use pricing within each region

Its still there! :) After clicking the link, click the International Pay-Per-Use Roaming tab.

Yeah unfortunately basically everything has to be expanded to get to it. I can see it being confusing.
