Picture Messaging Help

So, I have unlimited text messaging and I was wondering if picture and video messaging is included in that?

I want to upload some photos from my phone (Xenon) to facebook and I just want to be sure that I won't be charged for that.

Hello LOL,

Pictures messaging (MMS) is not included in the unlimited text messaging option that you have. You can always add picture messaging to your plan for $5 for 100.
Just note though....that what you are trying to do will actually charge you data NOT picture messaging charges.

Just a bit of a break down. If you take a picture on your phone = free
If you send that picture to a friend via text messaging = charged for MMS
If you choose to upload that picture to facebook = charged for data

On the subject of MMS and picture....  I understand that you get dinged extra when you send them but what about if you receive text messages containing pictures.  Would it be the same charge of 50 cents per?

@LalonLi

 

Receiving messages, even MMS, is absolutely free.

 

I hope this helps!

Hey sle and welcome to the Community!

 

Picture & video messaging does use data, but you don't need a data plan in order to send and receive them. Note that data needs to be enabled in your settings (and make sure Wi-Fi is off).
