I'm trying to text my friend in the US

I'm not sure how I enter the number.

I've tried like this:

011 1 555 555 555



What is the right way?

Well, you're missing a digit in the first example, but in all honesty you don't need to dial the 011 to text to the US, since both Canada and the US are part of the north american numbering plan.
