Can we send photo through text messages?

Hi, I'm currently on the $25 unlimited talk, text, and 1Gb plan.

 

Are we allowed to send photos through text messages or is it only texts?

 

The reason is my previous plan on Virgin didn't allow me to send photos through text messages. If I wanted to, I would have to pay extra.

@Winning247 Yes. But the photos are sent thru data or wifi. No extra cost.

Re: Can we send photo through text messages?

@Winning247, as already mentioned photos can be sent via MMS which is unmetered data.  Be mindful that the size of the photo is heavily cropped (300 kB or 600kB) and so the recipient will not be receiving an identical file.  Email attachment or photo sharing app would be better suited for sharing photos if providing an original matters.
