Just wondering if I can text message and BBM free of charge when I'm in Barbados.

No roaming add ons for anywhere except the US, so texting will cost you $0.60 a message both sending and receiving. BBM uses data, so that'll be at least $5/mb unless you're on wifi.

Hello Carolyn.

To complete what Timo said. If connected to a wifi service that it should work. Supposing BBM works as iMessage. Make sure you disable data before trying anything.
