    just to clear up a lil of your terminology (so you don't accidently receive the correct information, but misunderstand it)

    sms stands for short message service and what we dubb "text msgs" (160 character max).

    mms is multimedia messaging service and what we dubb "pic msgs".

    on smartphones, most providers have a dual charge system for using mms. it charges per "pic msg" (either deducting from your mms plan or charging per message) and charges for the amount of data (or deducts from the amounts of data you have as part of your plan).

    on regular phones with MMS abilities, you just are charged per type of message (if you send 1 pic msg, you're charged 1 pic msg. if you send 1 txt, you're charged 1 txt).

    I suggest you call up your provider and have made very clear how they will be charging you or you may find a huge surprise come end of the month. also talk to a few of the members on that site. nothing beats first hand experience.

    OK...it doesn't matter if they charge me for the data (that's how cing charges to RECIEVE pics...data and the msg charge) cause we have an unlimited data plan.
