Hi, I'm just wondering if I can receive text messages in the US without roaming add-on, and if messages can still come in, are they charged on a per-message basis.

Thank you.

Thank you so much!

So only outgoing messages (and calls) are charged?

yes.  outgoing messages are $5/100 texts.  Calls (in or out) without a roaming add-on is, I think, $1.50/min

How can I confirm that receiving SMSs when abroad is free?  I can't find a clear statement on the web site. I have a monthly plan.
