SMS/MMS from Canada- rejected or incur charges?

My son’s best friend just moved to Canada and my son has still been texting him. I know Republic plans do not cover texts to/from Canada. Is it because my son’s friend’s phone is still under a US plan ( they moved a week ago) or am I incurring charges?
Will the texting just stop once his friend’s line moves to a Canadian provider?

Republic plans actually include unlimited calling and texting to Canada, so there’s nothing at all to worry about.

Edited to add: There’s also nothing to worry about because it is impossible to accidentally incur charges with Republic. If your phone can do it, it is included in what you’ve already paid for.

Ok, thanks. I saw info on international service and it said SMS/MMS was not covered (although calls were,)

Glad to know he can continue to call and text his best friend. And that I don’t have to worry about any surprise charges.


Can you please send a link to the documentation where you saw this…so that we can request it to be amended, if required?

I believe this is the document. I’ve already submitted a request to update: International Service – Republic Help
