i think thats if you are abroad!! phone your mob CSbet there doing not alot else lol

Costs nothing to receive text from abroad, unless you have a foreign SIM. One of the reasons I have my Irish and Albanian phones switched off in UK otherwise it would cost me 40p a go.

as long as you are in the UK then it doesnt cost anything to receive the text.

If it's a UK mobile she has it won't cost you anymore to text her than ot would normally. and you don't get charged to recive a text even when abroad, you pay roaming charges for incoming calls when abroad (the originator pays the usual tariff the reciever pays the international part) if making a call from abroad they pick up all the bill, you pay no extra
