Multimedia messages use Data on Smart Phones?
I’m under Verizon and picked up a smart phone today (LG Enlighten). So I wasn’t accidentally using Data while at home, I turned that little feature off in the settings, but with that off I couldn’t download multimedia messages. With smart phones, do multimedia messages use up Data from one’s Data plan, or is it like standard phones and kept separate from Data usage?
Multimedia is not the same as text. You must have a data connection to transmit pixels. It’s like trying to talk through a telegraph (the button they used morse code on in the old days).
