Can I receive international calls or texts from outside of the 18 listed countries?

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

 Hi, under the province-wide plan, if I am in my home province, will I receive the texts or calls from countries that are not listed as one of the 10 countries? (For example, will I receive texts or calls from Taiwan?)


If I buy one of the international add-ons, will then I be able to receive as well as call phone numbers in Taiwan?


Thanks so much for your help.

Thank you. I will try WhatsApp. Sounds like a workable solution. She will be able to call as well as text, and the fact that she has an iphone and I have an android phone doesn't matter?

Thanks again. I think I will try whatsApp, but will do some research on Fongo as well.

@trooperp3a that's the beauty of WhatsApp is that it's available on both Android and iPhone and can work just fine over WiFi.  It's a much better instant messaging experience than texting and much more convenient especially when travelling. Other options you could consider include Facebook Messenger, Skype, Hangouts, WeChat, Line, and dozens of others.  But WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are incredibly popular and you will likely find most of your contacts between the two -- unless you contact people in China behind the goverment firewall, in which case WeChat should also be in your toolbox.
