Hi Paul,

You will be charged for every text you send or receive while in the UK. If you want to be able to text, then I would recommend you get your phone unlocked and get a UK SIM card and pre-paid plan over there.

Texts will be 60 cents each and unfortunately you have no control over incoming.

You have to judge how much volume you will end up using. Unlocking the phone and going with a wifi-compatible app or a local pre-paid SIM as an alternative will cost you the equivalent of about 100 Koodo texts just to start.
