I have had a Samsung Galaxy Ace (gt-s5830) for about a year, and I have never been able to successfully download photo texts using the standard Android messaging client. I always receive a message that says "downloading", but the photo never materializes, even when I have a wi-fi connection. I don't have a data plan with my Koodo package, nor do I really want one. On my older phones, photos could come in via text without needing a data plan. Is this still possible, or am I out of luck? If I modify my settings in some way, will I unwittingly get charged for data usage? I'd rather not receive photos than have a surprise data charge on my next bill. I have found other questions on this subject helpful, but most involve some kind of data plan. I'm more interested to know if it's possible to receive photos WITHOUT having a data plan, and without per-use charges appearing from other apps without my knowledge.
