Do picture messages count as data or do they count against my texting plan?

hi question,

I am not the account owner

we are on the MORE Plan ( 3 smart and my basic phone)

12 gigs of data

I have a Samsung Convoy 2.

My question... Does picture msgs go towards DATA or MMS  texting plan?

For some reason I noticed my data use has went from 0.01 to 0.03 now.

Thank you.

Hi CMAR606,

Glad you asked. You are on a great plan. Picture messages do go towards your text package. So in this case, you would not be charged data. Have you opened up Media Center on your phone lately? This will incur data. Since you are on a 12GB plan, there would be no additional charge; the 0.03 MB would be deducted from the data bucket. Keep us posted.

CMAR606,

You betcha! Picture messaging counts toward your texting package and only requires a data connection to transmit.
