Iphone uses Imessage which uses DATA (or WIFI) and not SMS
So Make sure you have DAta and SMS plan for Travel in the US or it won't work

I presume that you use IPhone.
Are you using text message to send text or you're using Imessage ?
.
To send a traditional text rather than through iMessage on a per-message basis, just do the following on your iPhone:
Tap and hold on the message you want to send as a text.
From the pop-up menu, select “Send as Text Message”
