Yes you will be charged 60 cents per text if you don't add a us roaming addon. Check out the roaming options below. If you don't want to use your phone while in the US you can take out your SIM Card or put the phone in airplane mode.

Incomming texts while roaming in the USA is free. You're charged 5$/100 outgoing texts while Roaming. Check your plan details for more information.

Some people are still on very old plans that don't include the 5$/100 texts For those people it's 60 cents per message sent or received.
