I am a new Koodo customer. I used to have a Wi-Fi phone (because it was free) so I haven't had a SIM card in quite a long time.. Anyways, I'm on the $15 base plan with Koodo (so no data, just texting) and I (sadly) JUST figured out, to send/receive picture messages my data has to be turned on. I had a bad experience (not with Koodo, this was a long time ago) where I got charged all this money for using data that I didn't use. So I guess my question is, now that I finally figured out what's wrong with sending/receiving picture messages, I just want to make sure that since I need to have the data turned on that I'm not going to be charged for data. (I'm pretty much always connected to Wi-fi) I looked through the settings and in each app, I turned off the setting that says "Background Data: Enable usage of cellular data in the background" so that it's not enabled, and I also unchecked the box that says "Auto-switch to mobile network: Use mobile data connection when Wi-Fi signal is weak". Is there anything else I need to do to ensure that I won't get charged for data? Are the things I did even right? I don't really know how this all works, so if someone could explain it to me I would greatly appreciate that!
My current phone is an HTC One M9, my location is Kamloops, BC and my plan is the pre-paid $15 base plan (unlimited texting and picture messaging).
