Re: Xfinity Mobile Roaming Charges for International Usage

"Calls placed internationally to the US while on Wifi Calling, are free." ... What about SMS while on Wifi?  I just want to verify... Thanks.

Re: Xfinity Mobile Roaming Charges for International Usage

 

wjjustice, SMS while on WiFi is charged at the international rate because the phone will connect to the nearest cell tower to complete the text transmission. If you are using iMessage, that is different. If you have an android phone, I would recommend using WhatsApp or Kik, etc for texting while abroad.
