>Am I always billed for data when sending and receiving MMS?
Not always. If you send and receive MMS over Wi-Fi, you can avoid data billing altogether. However, some smartphones may only have the ability to send MMS media over 3G/4G.
This looks like to be the case for the Nexus 5. My old phone (LG Optimus S) allowed me to receive and send pictures over wifi, on the Nexus 5 I can not do that. I did not realize this at first, but after constant problems with mms I realized this was the problem.
Anybody have any ideas as to what to do? I am a student and I trying to use only voice and text, and not data to save money. Since data is expensive, and there is wifi at my college and at my house. Maybe this only limited to the hangouts app. I will try using the app textra and see if it allows me to send and receive pictures over wifi, I am worried this will not help though.
