Moved to wireless from Internet forum. Any wireless as in cellular plan can receive texts from anywhere but you need a phone plan.

Hello,

Check on Att.com or the MyAtt app to see if you have a plan that allow international text and also that international abilities isn't blocked. You can also visit a local store or call customer care to inquire about this via 800. 331. 0500 (or 611 from your AT&T phone).

@mobilemax Another wrong answer. International texting is for sending texts, not receiving them. Any plan that has texting can receive international texts.
