You need to add the Int’l Dialing and LD Saver ($2/month) to be able to use your phone internationally.
While in Mexico, Texts are $0.60 per message (incoming and outgoing)

Will I be able to reverse the $2/month charge once I return so that I don't get charged again the next month?

Yes. Just go back onto self serve and remove it when you no longer need it

If you plan to TXT a lot while out of of Canada, I'd recommend:
1) Get your phone unlocked
2) When outside of Canada, get a local SIM card with Data
3) Download textPlus
That will assign you a new # you can use to TXT any # from anywhere you are. On their end it will just be a new # for them to TXT you from & doesn't require anything different for them to have. On your end, you'll need to use the textPlus App where the TXT to that # will be received/sent from. All it'll require to use is Data (either mobile or Wi-Fi will work).

I'm only looking for the ability to send a few texts so this might be overkill for me. Still a great option if I any need it for a longer period of time. Thanks.

If I only want to use text messaging, no calling, no data, just text messaging, from St. Lucia to Canada what do I need to add on. Everyone keeps talking about Int’l Dialing and LD Saver ($2/month), (which appears to actually be $3/month). Is adding the feature the only way to text message from St. Lucia. There is confusion as everything on Koodo site refers to talk and text while travelling internationally. Nobody refers to text only. Thanks
