will i be charged for receiving texts aboard

Currently away in Africa with work. My IPHONE 7 broke therefore i asked my OH to send out my old IPHONE 6. Sadly, alot of apps including whatsapp are asking for a pass code via text to be entered to confirm who i am. 

 

My question is, if i put data roaming on, will i be charged for RECEIVING texts? I am in West Africa.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Receiving texts is free wherever you are. It has nowt to do with data roaming, just roaming in general
