Is iMessage free when messaging someone internationally?

I have a friend in America who has an iphone and I want to message them. I was wondering if anyone knew if this would be free under EE? I have a contract with EE so not pay as you go.

iMessage uses your data allowance. It is the same all over the world as it it is going over the Internet.

If their number appears as blue then it sends like a Whatsapp/Facebook message so is free. Make sure that "send as SMS" is turned off to prevent being charged if either side's iMessage can't use data.
