And is there a fee if I'm using Wifi and my friend in the US is using 3G? Or do we both have to be on Wifi for it to be free?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

    It's free, unless one of you decides to use SMS ext, and then charges may apply.  If you want to be real cheap about it, go into the iMessage settings and change "send as SMS" to off.

    So my friend in the US won't be charged an international fee if they send the imessage back to me over 3G?

    I just want to be sure because she doesn't want to be charged.

    By using iMessage via internet and 3G, the person will

    only get however much data was sent deducted from their

    monthly allowance.
