Texting Out of Country

I have a few friends overseas (Italy, to be precise), and just last year a good friend of mine passed away. A mutual friend kept his phone to stay in touch with me (its from a company called Cricket or something). Now that I'm with AT&T, I'm wondering if there are any charges for texting out of the country as I did with my old carrier.

I do not think there are any international messaging charges if you are sending/receiving message to and from Italy. You might want to check with customer service though, just to be sure.

only reason I know about it isbecasue both my personal and corporate accounts get dinged heavily each month because of the number of texts myself, family and emplyees send - still cheaper the other carriers plans though
