I know that the subject has had many similar complaints and long discussions. My plan does have
However have noticed that when I disable data on my iPhone basic text messages do sent without any problem but pictures do not.
I have followed all the past posted suggestions - - re-setting phone, etc. etc - but pictures do not sent. Out of curiosity have also tried sending pictures with another iPhone that confirmed that pictures will not sent without data being enabled. Do others still have this problem and is there a solution?
So it seems, in our case anyways, that paying for our PM plans is only good for voice calls, and being able to use data.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you leave iMessage set up on an iPhone.
1. You can send a pic to another apple product over wifi or data.
2. You must turn data on if you send to an android.

When we disable iMessaging – our 3G plans may be too slow to send pictures within a reasonable time so it seems that they are not sending.

@Tsawwassen hey, one thing to remember
BOTH MMS and iMessage need Mobile Data to be on
MMS need Mobile data to be on but won't consume your data
iMessage needs Mobile data to be on (or Wifi) and will consume your data
And do you know if you are sending MMS or iMessage?

@Tsawwassen , if you want to use regular MMS, you need to turn iMessages off as the preferred messaging system to use. As for MMS, it uses unmetered mobile data which means mobile data does need to be turned on for it to work. iMessages will use either of WiFi or mobile data.
