I have the month to month unlimited everything plan .  However texts always worry me.  If I send pics or videos on text to other users in the USA, regardless of type of phone or network they have, will I be charged.  Also if people from USA send texts, pics / vids to me will I be charged?

Hi @nparnaby, you’ll be charged for sending any SMS or MMS messages to a United States mobile number, yes. You can always find the most up-to-date charges here - https://www.idmobile.co.uk/help-and-advice/international-and-roaming-charges

The best thing to do would be to download a messaging application like WhatsApp; that way, you can use your Wi-Fi connection or mobile data allowance to send messages, pictures and videos, without incurring international charges. Just keep an eye on your data allowance.

There’s no charge for receiving messages.

 

Thank you,

Rory
