Texting Israel.

I have texted someone who is on holiday in Israel.  I have no bolt ons or extras.  How do I know if they have received my text?  Or will the text just hang around until they get back to the UK.  I cannot see any details in my account that tells me about sending abroad.

@zaffy  If you texted a UK number they will receive it at some point. It just depends on the network they're roaming on as to when. You don't need a bolt on or any extras to text a UK number if they're not in the country.

Also check to see if you got charged more as they are roaming

You will never be charged for texting or calling a UK mobile, from the UK, no matter where they are.

It is the recipient that pays roaming charges.
