My best friend is stationed in Japan and has an app on his phone (he bought it in Japan) called HeyWire. I'm in the States. Will Verizon charge me for overseas texting?

Are you receiving it as a text or through the app?

No. We use similar apps to text out family and friends in the us. It assigns us a us #...so no charge to them. It's a normal text for them but all through the app for us.

That's what I was going to say, as long as it is an APP you BOTH are using then the fees won't apply

Our family in the US doesn't use the app. They don't need to.
