International Texting - How do I send an international text?

International texting is currently only available on our Pay-as-you-go '30 Day Worldwide' U.S. and Canadian number packages!

Keep in mind, U.S. and Canadian numbers can already exchange text messages within North America (US/CAN) WITHOUT having to purchase/extend to a '30 Day Worldwide' package. 

If you are currently on a Pay-as-you-go '30 Day Worldwide' plan, you will only see 'Phone Number Balance Using Account Balance' as a heading in your 'Number Settings' menu, since all calls/texts on this package type use Account Balance only. 

Please see How to Make a Call for more information on number formatting for sending international texts.  

NOTE: Due to current provider limitations, other Hushed mobile numbers (non-U.S./Canada numbers) can only exchange SMS text messages with other local mobile numbers in their respective countries. For example, U.K. Hushed numbers can only text other U.K. numbers. 

NOTE: Puerto Rico, Guam, and other overseas territories are not part of the U.S. telecom infrastructure. To contact these areas from a U.S. number, ensure you are using a Pay-as-you-go '30 Day Worldwide'
