Txt Msg question overseas

Is it possible to txt to someone overseas?

I.E. I am from Canada and want to txt someone in Australia

I guess a guy needs a country code eh?

Yes, it would be 011 61 4 xxxx xxxx to call or txt msg a mobile # in Australia. Of course, you'll need to have the ability to place international calls and/or SMS prior to initiating communications. You should be able to login to your Telus acct and add it if you don't already have international dialing on your plan.

+1 on Hibby's suggestion.

Don't forget that you will probably get charged international messaging charges per message incoming and outgoing. Check with your carrier for rates.

Re: Txt Msg question overseas

As long as you have international roaming enabled on your line, you will be able to receive text messages as long as you can connect to the cellular network in whatever country you are located in.
