Hi there @Samson125


As far as incoming text messaging with the Passport plan, messages received are charged at domestic messaging rates.


If you’re on Mobile Share Value, it will still be unlimited texting.


iMessage is always free it only requires a working data connection. If you’re connected to Wi-Fi then you are free to use iMessage at your leisure however if you’d still like to receive those messages  when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi then you can simply turn off iMessage in your device settings and the messages will be sent/received as text.
