Texting a American Number (While In Canada)


I have some american friends, I would like to know if it costs money to text them from my home in Canada. I browsed the website and found no answers, browsed the help section and found no answers. Why is there no answer to such a simple question? I can't even find any topics on it, is it a forbidden/hidden topic of mystery?

If you have one of the newer plans that includes unlimited texting, it is FREE worldwide, US included 🙂

Even if you have the $5 unlimited messaging feature, same idea as Sophia mentioned.

The fine print is talking about roaming in the USA. Basically, if you are travelling within the United States, then you will be charged for texts. As long as you are within the Canadian borders, then you are ok.

I think with the free buddies you only get unlimited calling right?

Depending on the age of your plan, somewhere between $0.35 and $0.50 per message sent. Incoming messages are always unlimited AFAIK.
