If you are in Canada and send the message to an US number you won't be charged because most of the plans on postpaid have international text messaging

No charge for receiving texts, regardless of origin. There should be no extra charge for sending text or picture message to a US number on prepaid either, though you must be in Canada for the phone to work at all.
