Hi Joan,

If you are in the US and want to text Canada (or any other country, including the US itself), every SMS will cost you $0.60. Unless you purchase a 3 or 30 days texting add-on, then texting from the US would be included :)

As well as receiving any SMS in the US will also cost $0.60 too

Assuming that only the phone in Canada is a koodo phone, there would be no charges for sending or receiving from a phone in the us, whether it is a canadian number or not.

Timo, pretty sure she was saying the Canadian phone is in the USA texting another Canadian phone but in Canada, which would cost .60 only for the Canadian phone in the USA for each message sent, free to receive while in the USA and the Canadian phone in Canada would not receive any extra charges.

Zero charges for the koodo phone in Canada, only .60 cents per a message sent from the Canadian phone number in the USA, but free to receive.

I'm afraid it's not free to receive messages in the USA PZABOY :( It's 60 cents as well :(
