Phone A has Verizon plan and is physically in the USA

Phone B has a US number and is physically in Europe

Phone A texts Phone B - Phone B gets charged

Phone B texts Phone A - Phone B gets charged 

Another way of saying this is if you are in the US, whether you are texting a US number that is in Europe or the US number is texting you from Europe, you don’t get charged.

Just about every modern plan has international texting so texting them from the states doesn't do anything on your end.

 

Their end would get a charge if they don't have any provisioning as their service is on a foreign tower.

Great question! I see our community members have provided great scenarios and correct answers to your inquiry (Weth - Sr. Leader and glitchedpixel - novice). To summarize, if you're sending a text message from your Verizon mobile phone while you're in the US to a US number that's traveling through Europe, you will not incur any charges for sending text messages to the US number. However, the receiving party may also not incur charges when receiving your text messages, depending on the plan they're subscribing to. - RobertC_VZW
