Receiving text is free while you are in the US, BUT there will a charge for out going text.

$5/100 outgoing texts as Pay-per use rate.

Pay-per-use texting in the US is actually $5 for the first one, then the next 99 are free, at least until your next billing cycle. Then the cycle re-starts over again.
