I was charged $135 for international texts . I received a data alert when my data usage was at 90% and expected the same warning but didn't get one.

Unfortunately the notifications only apply to data as data could be difficult to quantify, whereas talk minutes and the number of texts can easily be tracked and counted on your phone.

Check out section E of the wireless code with regards to Roaming notification requirements

International Data, Minutes & Text Add-on includes 50 outgoing texts.
And there will be pay-per use charge rate of $0.60/outgoing texts after your limit.
I'm sorry to say this, but over $100 of international texts charge is a lot more than you can say you didn't realize you were over your limit...
