I am on the $25 talk&text plan. If I bring my PM phone to the U.S. will it work? What are the options?

Public Mobile sells US roaming as an add-on. There are various packages available that cost from $8 to $20. They cover most of the continental US and a small part of Alaska. The packages only last 10 days so a long term US stay would be expensive. In that case, it would be better to sign up with a US carrier. US talk and text is $15 for 10 days.

Is there a text only option and if so how much for what period of time? If I don't go for any of these add on options will the phone still work?

If I go to the USA, I'll forward to my cell to my Fongo number. I usually get 1 GB of data for $20 for 10 days, and then use Google Hangouts dialer or Fongo if I need to make a call (which is rare).
I get inbound texts for Free and then I'll reply via email/ Facebook messenger/ WhatsApp.

If I go to Europe, I'll always buy a data-only SIM card upon arrival and use the same methods as above for phone calls.
