    I can do pix over MMS on the pearl for 25 cents a hit without a data plan. I called cingular and they added the capability to my phone. It is free to turn on, then just pay per use.

    grwiseman - welcome to pinstack!

    darkrhyda-
    you do not need a data plan to send/receive MMS, but you do need the provisioning set within your account and you do need the service books.

    Well it seems to be a little unfair for those who have unlimited txts, they should also have unlimited picture messages or MMS just like on all other phones
