Text messaging usage while outside of the United States is generally billed at $.50/message sent, $.05/message received.  If you're not leaving the United States, then you won't incur any roaming fees on messaging.

If you don't have a text plan, text messages are billed $.20/message and picture/video messages are billed $.25/message while in the United States.

The standard per minute rate for long distance to Canada is $.49 cents /minute. You can get a International Long distance value plan for 3.99/month that brings that rate down to $.9 cents per minute.

 

 

As long as you have a plan for texting it will count against your allowance for domestic text messages.

If you wish to use messaging while roaming outside of the United States, it would be suggested to call Verizon Wireless Customer Service to add the 'international dialing' feature to your mobile number.  Without this feature, your phone won't function to send/receive information while roaming.  After the feature is added, it would be imperitive to update the roaming capabilities of your phone while within the Verizon Network by dialing *228 and choosing option 2 at the prompt.  Without following these steps, it's unlikely your phone will receive service while in Mexico.
