The standard recharges do not include any value for international calls or text, however according to the CIS you can purchase Add On packs that do give you value for those sort of uses, with the $10 add on you can make international calls starting at 3c/m depending on the location, the details of which can be found here.

ok, see international calls are in ten dollar data pack but no mention of text/sms messages.

we use text/sms messages for international contact cause normally much cheaper than phone calls.

So still trying to find out if international text/sms messages included.

You can use the $10 add on packs for international SMS yes,

 

if you use the rate calcualtor you can find out the call, sms and mms rates for each country,

so using china as an example it will give you the following:

 

International Calls 3c per min + 29c connection fee
(Or part thereof) International SMS 20c per SMS International MMS 75c per MMS
 
Below the table which has the main costs it has "International Rates Information" if you click that you can then enter the country/countries in question and it will show the charges for those.
