Texting between our smartphones while both abroad

madsquopper

    We're on the over 55 simple one plan. Say that we're both in Malaysia (it's on the coverage list) and want to text each other on Android phones. We have the native Messages app and also Messenger. Do we need to do anything special besides just sending a text as we do in the US? Not sure how the US numbers get recognized overseas. Or do we need to append a prefix to our US numbers?

     

    Assume we're not on wifi, but that we were auto-connected to whatever local network is assigned on startup. Thanks.
