How do you send a text message from your cell phone to US?

Just like you would to any other place - by using the right telephone number. For instance if you're texting from the UK to a US phone, you need to use the US country code, and to drop the first zero in the cell phone prefix. If you're texting to a UK phone in the US, simply use the same number as if the phone was in the UK. The network jeeps track of where the phone is. Note that some contracts and prepaid phones might not allow international traffic.

How do you call a US cell phone from a UK cell phone?

How do you dial a US cell phone in the UK?

If you are calling a US-based cell phone that is at the moment physically in the UK, you just dial the US telephone number as normal. The physical location of the cell phone does not affect what you dial to call it. The cell phone user will pay any roaming fees that may apply. If you are calling a US cell phone from the UK, use telephone country code +1, followed by the 10-digit US telephone number. If you are calling from a mobile phone, you should be able to enter the number in full international format, beginning with the plus symbol. Otherwise, substitute the UK's international access prefix 00 for the plus symbol. Note that, unlike the UK, where mobile numbers are assigned to nationwide non-geographic codes, US cell phone numbers use the same geographic area codes as landlines, and are completely indistinguishable from landline numbers. Calls to US mobile phones are charged at identical rates to calls to US landline numbers.

Why do cell companies in US charge us for making AND receiving calls and texts when in UK you only get charged for making the call or text?

In the US, cell phones are given numbers with standard area codes so there is no way to know if it is a land line or cell phone. Telephone operators do not make different charges because callers are unaware of the type of telephone they are calling. The additional costs of connecting to a cell phone are therefore paid by the cell phone subscriber rather than the caller. In the UK, cell phones have their own area codes, always starting with 07. Callers are able to identify the number as a cell phone. Telephone operators are therefore able to charge the caller rather than the cell phone subscriber. Both charging methods have their own benefits. In the UK, cell phone users cannot be charged for unwanted calls or for texts so costs for using a cell phone are easier to control. In the US, cell phones can be called without paying big premiums. A UK call from land line to cell phone can frequently cost 30p per minute or more (45c per minute).
