Re: US Roaming Text Only

@Debby A data roaming package is not required to receive text messages.  You can simply set your phone so that text messages get delivered through the regular SMS protocol.

@Debby US Roaming Data will get you iMessage (along with anything else data: web browsing, email, googling reviews of restaurants you might want to visit, making video calls over Facetime--though use this sparingly as it will suck up your data relatively quickly, etc).  US Roaming Texting will just get you SMS and MMS messaging.  It's up to you to decide what you want/need while you're travelling to the USA.

Re: US Roaming Text Only

Hi @Debby,

 

If  you use an Iphone and bought a text only add-on for the US it's not going to work as iMessage uses data.

You need to go to Settings - Messages - activate Send as SMS (send as sms when iMessage is unavailable)

Also more info about US roaming can be found here .
