Will it cost me more to text Singapore?

My mate is in Singapore on business. Will it cost me more to text him ... and//or will it cost him to receive? We're both on Three contract.

It won't cost you a penny extra to text him, but he will pick up the extra charge. Don't ask me how much though :/

I think that's the wrong way around.

If roaming onto M1 (National) it looks like they can't receive texts...

Are you sure that's not just for Singapore based numbers.

Fairly sure but not entirely. They don't make it easy.

International calls and messages, calls and
messages made and received whilst abroad,
premium rate calls and messages, reverse charge
messages, message alert services and directory
service calls, calls to 0800 / 0500 / 0808 numbers
that are not on the THA list, non-geographic
numbers (087, 084) and special numbers (eg 090,
070) are excluded from any monthly and Top-up
voice and messaging allowances
