For postpaid users (not prepaid), you can indeed send a text while in the USA but it's 5$ per 100txts sent per billing cycle unless you choose a roaming package.

Is it not really $5 for the first one then the next 99 free within the same billing cycle? Send one or 50 texts it's still $5 total, not five cents a piece as some folks have often (mis)interpreted.

I would argue that, that's exactly what he said. Same as data is described as $5 per 250 mb and not $5 for 1 mb and then 249 mb for free lol

No your plan does not cover you while you are in the states. You only have international texting while in Canada. It will cost $5/100 texts you send unless you purchase a roamind add-on:
