Do you need data on to send/receive MMS?

pointytip

Hello,

 

 

I have a Nexus 5 with T-Mobile. I have a messaging plan (Simple Choice), and I can send SMS just fine without data. However, I cannot seem to send MMS without a data connection. I tried using Wi-Fi to send MMS via Hangouts, but it does not work. When I turn data back on, the MMS sends.

 

 

Just wondering if I need data to send/receive MMS. If so, why doesn't Wi-Fi work? Do I even need to have data/internet to send MMS?

 

If data is required, does it get charged against my data limit, or does it somehow get included in my messaging plan?
