I'm going to be in Spain in May and will buy a pre-paid SIM card with a local number. As long as I have connection to the internet, via wifi or through the phone service there, will my friends and family be able to use my regular US number to text me? Do I need to do anything to make this work before or after I get the pre-paid SIM card there?
I'd like this to be seamless for my friends and family to text me at the same number.

Your answer made me wonder about my tablet I use in my kitchen which only has wifi, yet I have the verizon messaging app on it and I receive/send messages on that device... wouldn't this basically work the same?
I think I remember I had to 'register' or something to make that table send/receive texts. Does that make sense?
