Re: charge for incoming iMessages

I think I understand the cost of sending iMessages. I have the option of sending SMS messages turned off. Either the message will not get sent or it will be free, unless I exceed my data allowance of 300GB. If the bubble turns blue, I won't get charged and the online usage indicates this.
It's the incoming message cost that's got me stumped. The Apple text you quoted does not address incoming messages at all the way I read it.
"*Normal carrier data rates may apply." - I have no worries about paying for data. I am concerned about the 20 cents per message cost, if applicable.
"Messages may be sent as SMS when iMessage is unavailable; carrier messaging fees apply." - I'm not concerned with outgoing messages, just incoming.
Will I be charged 20 cents for incoming iMessages or not?
