responding by text to an overseas text

My friend texted me from Rome, Italy. I texted her back from California. She had purchased international coverage from Verizon. Would only she incur international charges, since I did not initiate the call but just responded to her? Or would both of us be charged?

Verizon works just like AT&T... No charge to get a text while roaming.  But she is charged to send a text while roaming.  Verizon has day pass too.  Hopefully she used it, or used wifi calling to avoid high charges for using another cell carrier.

Both at&t and Verizon can text other countries for free.  

(Calling is not free)

Thanks! So, I won't get charge for responding to her overseas?

Hello edf6873, this is a very interesting question, and we'd like to answer it. 

 

You will not be charged for the text sent to your friend. However, your friend will be charged for that text.

 

We hope this puts your mind at ease.

 

Thank you for contacting AT&T Community Forums.
