I was wondering if wifi text messaging will work out of the country just like wifi calling and will I will be able to send unlimited SMS texts messages through a wifi network without using my global plan's allowance?

If you are on wifi and have wifi calling active, you should think of this just like you are sitting at home. All calls and texts will work when wifi calling is active and all charges are as if you are at home.

So, yes SMS texts will be sent over wifi calling and not use your global plan allowance - while on wifi and wifi calling is active, or you send through message plus.

jordantball, Let's explore the best options for your global needs. What text messaging apps would you be using? How long will you be out of the country? Do you need to stay connected even when you are away from WiFi? What country(ies) will you be travelling to? http://spr.ly/65878POnc
