How come International Messaging with the MORE plan isn't free?

I recently upgraded my plan to "MORE Everything" because International Messaging was promised to be free.

My daughter planned a trip to India and we signed up for International Data to cover her data usage.

When my daughter returned, we were charged $0.50 for each text message that she sent.

How can Verizon advertise free International Messaging on the "MORE Everything" Plan  if it isn't free?

It's free texting TO international numbers while you are in the US, not free texting while you are abroad.
