The one drawback of most Tracfone handsets is that they don't allow sending of international texts. If you need that, their related brands, Net10 and Straight Talk allow international SMS messages but only on their unlimited international plans which cost $60 to $65 per month.

What if you don't want or need unlimited international texting?


At 2 cents per international text, PlatinumTel offers one of the best prepaid options.Picture messages also cost 2 cents (your data allotment is also charged but the same as with domestic MMS).


The prepaid plans from the major carriers, GoPhone from AT&T and prepaid from T-Mobile, allow international texting but at a high per message cost of about 20 to 25 cents.


Some carriers look for customers who tend to call a particular country and offer services including texting at a somewhat  lower cost to that place. An example is Cricket which offers plans for Mexico.
