I'm travelling in Great Britain. Don't have a plan but roaming turned off. Texting worked for a time with wifi but stopped working suddenly even when using wifi. Why?

Texting does not work through wifi at all, it uses the cellular network. Imessage would work through wifi, if you are using an iPhone, but only to other iphones. There are also several other instant messaging apps which would work through wifi, although they would typically require the recipient to be using the same app.
