Hello Don888,

 

  The Unlimited International texting:

 

  Includes messages sent from Canada on the Fido network to email addresses or Canadian, U.S. and international wireless numbers. Sent/received premium messages (alerts, messages related to content and promotions) and messages sent while roaming not included and charged at applicable rates. ~ taken from Full Details.

 

  Generally, there shouldn't be any additional charges for sending/receiving SMS to/from short code numbers. However, there are some premium services which would incur extra charges. Those charges would be for the services and not necessarily for sending/receiving the SMS per se (see here).

 

  As far as I am aware, the Text to Home Phone (landline) is a service which is not included with the Unlimited texting plans and costs 25¢ per message (see here).

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
