To use MMS you need data and $180 yearly plan is without data. you might get charge for that.
I believe it depends on the provider and the capabilities of the phone does it not ? Our pay as you go phone with Rogers will send and receive pics with no data purchase but our pay go account with a different provider does require data. That difference also partially explains the difference in pricing of the products provided by each provider. Mind you on the Rogers account there is a charge to send pics there isn't one to receive them and I haven't seen it referred to as a data charge
While my grandfathered per minute plan has no data component, when I receive a text with an attachment I can't see it until I enable data on my phone. I'm then charged for the data against my balance.

Interesting ... we are on the same plan with no data ....we just leave the data enabled on the phone all the time and like I said I 'm pretty sure we can receive pics at no cost but have to pay to send . Or at least that is the way it used to be .
I've been saving my call transactions, but must have missed where I received a texted picture, so I asked someone to send me one to see how I'm charged. When I received the text, here is what I got:
I then turned on data and clicked Download.
It took a little while and then the picture appeared and I saved it.
Oddly. I received two $0.50 data charges but no separate SMS charge.
I emailed those screen shots to myself so I could edit out personal information and post them here. What is really odd is that at this exact same time I received 2 emails from <my cell number>@mms.rogers.com. One was a generic message I've seen before saying
"Rogers msg: As of December 14, 2015, we will no longer play a pre-recorded message if you forget to dial a 1 before making a long distance call within Canada. Instead, we'll connect you right away. Long distance fees will continue to apply, so please check your account at MyRogers to better understand what is included in your plan. Thank you."
But the other one was a scam message I've seen before:
"532A Wireless Refunds !
(519)532-**** has been refunded
We apologize for this matter.

How do I pay this online? I need very specific directions please.........because........
I go to PAY AS YOU GO online but it is limited to $100.00,.......same on the phone.
Any help would be appreciated as this has happened for the second year now and I end up going to a Rogers Store....not always convenient.
I go to the store too since I have one near work. But as far as I know you can buy $100 first, and then buy in $20 increments until you reach $80 (don't know if you can just buy a $80). As long as you paid the $180 by deadline then it's fine.
