    Default MMS without data plan
    I don't have a data plan and was charged with a few bucks when tmobile enabled the pay per use data policy a few months ago. I called up tmobile to have data blocked but apparently some leaked through and I got charged again the following month. Didn't feel like getting charged again so I disabled "cellular data" under network settings. Problem now is that my mms messaging which worked flawlessly before is no longer working for sending or receiving mms.

    Is there a way to disable EDGE/data without affecting the MMS capability?

    iPhone 3gs unlocked on iOS 5

    mms uses data.

    why not contact tmobile and tell them you had the data blocked, why would you have to pay.

    anyways the plans are pretty cheap now.
    5 bucks for 200mb plenty for just MMS
    10 bucks for unlimited 2 gbs throttled after.

    Mms does NOT require data
    I am also trying to find out the answer to this problem so please refrain from spreading lies about things you know nothing about.

    cellular and data roaming turn on.make sue you call t mobile to block no internet access for the line without data plane.because t mobile try to charge you even you not setting for internet.they say you have smart phone.
