Get a US phone since all US carriers consider SMS to Canadian numbers as a local text i.e., non-international.
If that isn't an option, use email and send them emails i.e., your friends 10-digit phone number (at) pcs.rogers.com
They can read the incoming SMS although it will charge them if they want to reply to your email address. Just let your friends know they should reply as an SMS to your number instead.
Or just convert all your friends to Blackberries and use BB messenger since it just uses data.
