If I send a text from the EU, will the person I send it to be charged?

I am set up on roaming so can use texts/calls/data aborad but if I send a text to someone in the uk who isn't on EE and doesn't have roaming will they be charged for receiving it?

The person receiving the text in the UK will not be charged to receive your text while you're roaming. Smiley Happy

 

The only time a UK number is charged to receive a text message is when they receive a premium rate SMS.
