Hi ! If I were to text to a phone in Egypt (Egyptian number) and receive texts from Egypt, while in Canada, do I get charged ?

No you will not because your phone is in Canada when the texts are sent and received :)

International (world wide) texts are free to send and receive, As Tyler stated you must be in Canada though.

However some countries and companies are not supported so make sure that Koodo and the company that your friend in Egypt uses are supported so you can text them unlimitedly while you are in Canada.

I had called koodo earlier asking about this and the man stated "I don't know what you're talking about. We do not do international texts. We only have an LD saver for calls" ?
