I have a phone with 250 text plan. The phone is up for the upgrade thing. I'm choosing a similar phone but when I go to check out it has a "Data Packages" section. The first choice is free but a Pay Per Use ($1.99/megabyte) which at first I thought ok, no problem. Now I'm wondering if they've changed to when I send a picture text it's considered "data". Is this the case cause other wise I can keep my current phone and plan and send/receive pictures at no extra cost.
Text messaging (including sending pictures and video) is part of your texting plan, and is not charged as data. You can still send/receive up to 250 text/pix/flix messages and not incur any data charges.
