You'd put in their full US phone number NORMALLY with US international code as though you were texting them from the UK (although you can sometimes get away with just using the national US number but since using the international code should ALWAYS work its better to do that I think)

You'll be charged an international roaming text charge for whatever charge they make for texting from the US (even though you're texting someone in the US FROM the US)
