    I was wondering, I have unlimited texting from US Cellular, but I have a friend who recently moved to AU. I was wondering the charges that it would be.

    International texts count the same as any other text. However, some international carriers we only have 1.5-way agreements with. In those cases, you can send to them, they can reply, but they can't initiate to you. They can, however, work around that by save one of your texts in their inbox, then just reply to that whenever they want to start the conversation. Here's the link to see which carriers you'll be able to text with, and which ones are full (2-way), and which are 1.5-way:

    U.S. Cellular

    It looks like we have 1.5-way agreements with all (or nearly all) of the Aussie carriers.

    You don't need a zip code. Just below the zip code box is a link that let's you pick a city and state.

    I think international rates are different as compared with nationwide messaging. As my cousin went to Dubai last week and when I used to text him on his mobile phone, it ate up a lat of my balance. I didn't calculate exactly but it was really making a difference.
