Default does anyone know how much it costs to send or receive overseas text messages?

Someone from the other side of the world that i met in a chat room has gotten ahold of my phone number and keeps calling and sending me messages. Other than being annoying, i was wondering if this is not also costly. I have an att plan that doesnt include international text messaging, and i was wondering just how much it costs for me to open them. Also is there a way to route all messages from this person to where i could open them online instead of on my phone?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Don't put your phone number out in public then.

Call up your service provider and get them blocked.
