Cellular Phones/international sms


What does it cost per text from Wisconsin on a Verizon cell to Iceland GSM?

Verizon charges per text message if you don't have an international text feature on your account. The per text charge if you are in the US texting anyone outside the US is typically $.50 a text. If you are going to text to someone in another country, I might suggest using iMessage if you have an iPhone and that person has an Apple device (then it's no charge) or perhaps using email to text to their text address (no charge for that either). I would try to use other ways to communicate other than just regular text messaging. Hope this helps
