The international text charge of $5/100 messages - how long do I have to use the 100 messages? I will be in the US for a two week period, and will probably use fewer than 100 texts in that period - does that mean I will pay one $5 charge; a $5 charge in each billing period if I am away over two billing periods; or will it be $5 per day for 100 messages in that day?

Hi Mark,

When it comes to the roaming text charge, the 100 messages are good until the end of your billing cycle. So you could leave the US and go back again a couple days later and you would only see one $5 charge, unless you went over the allotted amount of text messages then you'd see it go up by another $5.

Hope that helps answer your question :)
