Hi @Shyvonne

As long as recipient of your message is using UK number as well you won't be charged anything extra but your allowances. They will be charged though when they reply to you.

Kind Regards

Hi V199629, no, there is no charge to receive normal texts messages whilst roaming. Only premium messages may be chargeable as they would be in UK. -Phil
Can I message someone who is on holiday in Turkey with a UK phone number or will it charge me?
