I have some american friends, I would like to know if it costs money to text them from my home in Canada.

I browsed the website and found no answers, browsed the help section and found no answers.

Why is there no answer to such a simple question? I can't even find any topics on it, is it a forbidden/hidden topic of mystery?

Depending on the age of your plan, somewhere between $0.35 and $0.50 per message sent. Incoming messages are always unlimited AFAIK.
