For text messages only, I can receive from Canada free, but will have to purchase an add on to text from US to Canada, correct? Is there roaming charges? Again this is for texts only, no talk time.

I believe for prepaid accounts you need the add-on to receive SMS as well as send.

You will just need the $5 or $20 US roaming add-on text booster depending on your anticipated volume. Includes roaming + texts for one fee. Without the add-on, you will have no service at all in the US.

If you're not on prepaid, Incoming texts are free.. Without a roaming package, Outgoing texts are 5$ per 100 texts sent per billing cycle. No roaming charges apply.
