Receiving texts when I'm abroad



I'm currently in Singapore and just don't want any unexpected charges on my bill. Will it charge me to receive texts when I'm abroad?

 

I know that I should turn my voicemail off but now that I'm in Singapore, will it charge me to call the number to disable it?

 

Any other possible things which would cost me when abroad?

 

Thanks a bunch!
