Hi Glendis,

As long as your in Canada, texting to the United States is free (incoming and outgoing).

Hi there Glendis... Erwin just said it all, no worries as long as you are in Canada... But just to clarify, If you think about crossing the border, then you will need a roaming pack to avoid having a huge bill for roaming... Some clients get confused and think that international text messages means everywhere outgoing and incoming.... Enjoy...

Based on what everyone else said this goes with all international texts received while in Canada.

Also note premium text messages (like if you subscribe to something that sends you text messages), those are charged individually since those get paid out to the service that sent you those texts
