It's 2019, time to change the text limit

Cannot text non-American numbers with Passport plan

I am currently in France and paid the Passport plan so I can still be able to text, call and have data (I have an iPhone). When I arrived, my phone automatically switched from AT&T to Bouygues. I switched off iMessage, as it uses data that I don’t need since it says I have an unlimited message plan.
