Question about international plan on phone

Hi! Does anyone know how to receive texts when I am outside U.S. ? My phone shows no services and cannot receive any message or calls. I just add a 5$ international call plan, but it did not work. What should I do?

If prepaid then you won’t have service except select European countries

The only $5 international plan is for prepaid. That plan is for international calls from the US, not for calls when outside of the US. You wasted your $5. As noted, prepaid does not roam internationally except Canada, Mexico and select European countries. Unless you are in one of those countries, there is nothing you can do.
