Incoming text charges when roaming internationally

Both Fido and Virgin Mobile offer free incoming text while roaming anywhere in the world. Will Koodo look into implementing the same offer?

Um... Koodo does that too EDIT: My bad. Looks like it's just the US http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/travelling
I asked at the Kiosk and was told that it's only US roaming that can receive free incoming text. The website also shows the same and it's $0.60 per text incoming/outgoing. We can't control the text we may receive when travelling not just in the US, but also worldwide. It's a worry when travelling with Koodo.

You could always try to dispute the charges but it's at your own risk
