Text messaging & 3MB pictures (jpegs)

dagmar10

    Hello,

     

    If I send a 3MB picture from my phone's gallery through text messaging does that 3MB file use up data or is it considered a text and, therefore, will not use up my limited, precious data?

     

    Thanks!

        Heya, dagmar10! MMS does not deplete your data allotment, and it doesn't actually require a data plan, though there is some default provisioning we need to put in place on the account side for it to work. One thing that might be worth calling out is that the maximum size per message to send MMS is 1MB. Hope that helps!
