Is texting an American number while in Canada included in the unlimited texting plan? Or will I be charged for international messaging?

I have the $35 plan which has unlimited text messaging. Does this include texting a Chicago number while in Canada? Or will I be charged internationally?

As long as you are in Canada you can send text messages to or receive them from anyone in the world. There will be no extra charges.

This comment was from a year ago.  Does it still apply?  I have a $30 plan that includes unlimited texting.

I will be traveling to USA, and I also have a $35 plan with Unlimited Texting.  Does it mean I can send and receive texts in USA at no charge?

@helgabf: No, it is unlimited if you are in Canada.

If you travel to US, you are roaming to another network. Hence, it is not free, and if you want to control the cost, I would suggest you buy an add-on https://www.koodomobile.com/help/travelling-us
