Currently in the UK and I my iPhone says “No Service” even after restarting phone, resetting network, turning automatic off in the network selection. I don’t have easy roam but shouldn’t I be able to receive sms whilst abroad?

To clarify what Dinh is saying, you need to include the International Voice Roaming add-on in order to be able to receive any texts while abroad. https://www.koodomobile.com/en/help/easy-roam

You need to enable roaming (either with easyroam or payperuse) to connect to the local foreign network. Otherwise, the phone would not work and cannot receive the free incoming sms.

You might as well get easy roam. 

If you don't use roaming features (talk, sending texts, data) you won't get charged. 

If you accidentily use roaming features then you are protected at a limit of $13 per day to use your plan like at home. 

Otherwise accidental roaming in the UK with the pay per use rates is

Voice rate (per minute) $2.00
Data $5/MB
Outgoing SMS $0.60
