Usa texting

I have the 15.00 plan. It says I have international texting . I was just in the USA and on two occasions I tried to text and I could not. It said not delivered both times.

am I not able to send a text from the USA with my 15.00 plan.

Re: Usa texting

@Lynban  international texting means texting from canada to anywhere in the world.

 

if you want to text from the usa you need to buy a  usa raoming addon.

@LynbanIf you want to text FROM the US you need to purchase a US Roaming Add on or upgrade to the $60 US / Canada plan.

 @Alan_K:  Once again another victim of the misinterpretation of international.

 @Lynban: No. You would need to buy roaming add-ons to send texts and make calls in the US.

Re: Usa texting

The plan only works whilst you're in Canada. If you go to the US, you'll need the 10 Day US Roaming Add-on.

Picture below is the add-ons available to you.Screenshot_20190906_234608.jpg

 

 

Buying an add-on is a two step process. Link below is the guide to buy an add-on.

Re: Usa texting

Ok, I see now I misinterpreted the word international to mean more than it does.

my next trip to USA is for a three month period in January and I only need to be able to text both in USA and back to Canada.

can I get a three month add on plan or do I need the 60.00 plan each month when I only need to be able to text.

Re: Usa texting

@LynbanThe Add ons are only valid for 10 days, so you will need to do a cost/ benefit yourself.

For a 3 month stretch...you might just want to get a local sim card in US. Maybe consider using a free voip app like TextNow...send and recieve free calls and texts as long as you have a robust wifi.
