Does receiving texts trigger the International Day Pass $10 per day charge?

If I'm traveling internationally, have the International Day Pass feature on my account, have Cellular Data turned off, and ONLY receive texts (like automated alerts), and do not send any texts, or make or answer any calls, is the $10 charge applied, or no charge?

incoming text, no.


Use and assessment of fee: Once you add this option to your device, the first time you use data or voice, or send a text message in an International Day Pass (IDP) country, you’ll automatically be charged a $10 daily fee. The fee covers additional data, voice, or text messages sent for 24-hours from the initial use in any IDP country during that period. You’ll be charged an additional $10 fee for all subsequent 24-hour periods in which you use data or voice, or send a text message on a device set up with International Day Pass in an IDP country until you cancel the service. Incidental data usage: Apps on your device, continue to use data even when you may not be aware of the usage. Such incidental data usage may trigger the $10 daily fee. To avoid unintended use of International Day Pass, turn off the roaming feature for your smartphone or device.
