Receiving text while outside of the U.S.

One has to believe that the subject is intentionally ignored but all I want is to be able to recieve sms on my U.S. phone when I am out of the U.S.

I don´t need to make calls, receive calls or send messages. JUST RECIEVE SMS messages. I have a prepaid plan. My phone does not appear to be receiving any signal now. What should I do?

prepaid does not roam in most countries. Therefore no service no texts

AT&T prepaid does not have free roaming agreements except for Mexico and Canada.
Only recently AT&T added roaming agreements with a very few European countries, and the prepaid roaming plan is expensive and only covers one week.

Canceling prepaid service before you leave the United States is extremely easy and takes less than 1 minute. All you had to do was log into your pay go online account and turn the auto-pay switch to off. Prepaid self terminates without refills

If you did not turn off auto-pay before you left the United States, your only option now is to cancel the credit or debit card with your financial institution
