Where is the SMS Roaming package?

Hi there, I see the Easy Roam package for $10/day (international) that allows you to use your calls/sms/data...but where is the SMS international package? I'm sorry to say, but I feel that $10/day is a tad of a rip off when I don't want to use anything but SMS for 7 days in Mexico. And really, is $70 extra on the bill worth it? That seems awful to change those plans and not give other options? Am I missing something or missing where the SMS International plans are hiding? Cuz I'm better off getting a Mexico prepaid SIM and give any extra funds cuz that seems more logical. 
I know it's not just Koodo doing this, but the customers should have more options like they did a year ago (or whenever this package came into play).

Hi Christy,
If you don't want Easyroam, you could remove the easyroam add-on from your account and use "pay per use" rate. That might be more suitable for you as you mentioned SMS was the only thing you needed. I believe the rate is $0.6/ SMS. https://www.koodomobile.com/payperuse?INTCMP=KMNew_EasyRoamCTA_PayPerUse

Other option could be a local SIM like you said.

Nope that's it. Pay per use or the 10 dollars a day. You are definitely better off getting a local prepaid sim. Much cheaper.

ya, that's unfortunately cuz they had SMS packages before this easy roam. Well, I bought a Know Roaming SIM that is like a prepaid SIM but includes FREE Whatsapp usage practically anywhere in the world whether you use the prepaid section or not. 
They should bring back different options cuz not all of us want to use calls/data/sms vs me who only needs sms.
Thank you!!
