Can someone clarify this to me? I'm looking at a plan upgrade but just want to understand a couple items in the new plan.
Unlimited Domestic & Int'l Text
- Is there a fee to send a text to Italy for example while within Canada? I called Telus to ask and they said that it would be pay per use even with this feature in a plan that I am considering. That doesn't make sense.
- Does this feature cover SMS, MMS and Video or just SMS?
- if I am outside of Canada, is there a fee to send? I assume that's roaming and a pay per use feature.
For the CAN-US 5G+ plans, would SMS, MMS and Video messages be at no charge between US and Canada (Or 'US to US' or 'Canada to Canada') while a subscriber is in the US or Canada? I assume its included.
Historically, Telus only offered free domestic texting, but it appears that SOME of their current plans now offer free international texting. Can you share a link to th plan you are considering?
This page suggests that unlimited international plans should include MMS and Picture messaging.
Canada-US effectively makes the border transparent to your plan. Messages will be at no additional charge between US and Canada in either direction.
The International texting plans include text, picture and video messaging as long as the message is sent from Canada so outside of Canada would be pay per use; the only exception to this would be if on a CAN-US plan and then it would include unlimited messaging between the two countries including while in the US.
