Text messaging in Canada from a US Verizon phone

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by techman41973@yahoo.com, May 22, 2007.

  1. I am traveling to Canada (Vancouver) in the next two weeks.
    I called Verizon today and asked about the cost per text message sent
    in Canada from my U.S. Verizon cell phone to another U.S Verizon cell
    phone.. They actually couldn't give me a direct answer. They could
    only say that its a good chance that there is no extra charge for text
    messages (only a 1-hit from my quota of 250 per month for $5). They
    said there is a slight chance that I would get charged 25 cents per
    message, depending on the roaming conditions on the Canadian network.
    Can anyone confirm the cost of text messages, someone who has recently
    been in Canada with their US Verizon phone?
    Thanks

    Well this might give you something to ponder. I was in Montreal PQ and text
    messages were not able to be sent.
    Nor was Mobile Web available even though Verizon Wireless stated it should
    work. I think at the time they partnered with Bell Mobility or TELUS but
    neither company could get it to function properly. And they had me change
    settings in the phone etc. and I spent hours on the hotel phones on and off
    trying to get it fixed.

    Funny part was my incoming text messages hit me quickly as soon as I crossed
    into the State of New York...
    Strange indeed.

    When I was in Canada (around Toronto area) I could send and receive text
    messages and they were at no additional cost - just came from my monthly
    allowance. Verizon's website says the same thing that text messages in
    Canada are treated as domestic messages.
