 @rlaseur : ....or get a voip app like TextNow and use some of that roaming data. Or better, use wifi that seems to be everywhere these days. The apps can do both talk and text. So you receive the text as normal. Then reply using the app.

You can receive texts in the US but to send them then you'll need roaming add-on.  To make calls and use data will also require a roaming add-on.
