Receiving text message internationally

Hi, I have the $45 prepaid plan for my AT&T SIM Card. I am traveling to Singapore, and I am wondering if I can receive international text from Singapore there because I could not receive any text while I am here. If it is not included in the plan, I am wondering if there is any way to enroll in a package to receive international text?

@Nov1996 I don't know why you wouldn't get texts from there to your US number if they sent it properly. You don't need a special plan for that.


Your cell service won't work IN Singapore, GoPhones don't work outside North America.


You can call to outside NA with the right plan
