Receiving international calls on a mobile - expensive?

Anyone placed a call from the US to a mobile phone in the UK? Or more importantly, been the recipient of such a call?

A friend in England (with no land line and very limited email access) just sent me her mobile phone number to make it easier to reach her. I'm not worried about the price of me making the call from the US, but I'm concerned whether or not she'll get nailed with a massive mobile bill for receiving an international call (or text). Think it would be treated on her end as any other incoming call, or would we both be caught paying high international rates? I of course emailed her back asking that very same question, but it could be weeks before I get a reply. Figured I'd check if you wise souls had any thoughts to tide me over. Unfortunately I don't know what provider she has, so I realize any answers will be purely anecdotal and we won't necessarily have the same results. Just curious if there's a consensus one way or the other.
