Iphone SE - iMessage and Texting without DATA


I have an Iphone SE, talk and text only plan.  Do I need to leave Cellular Data turned ON?  I want to receive messages thru imessage and regular text.  Currently I am not receiving texts at all.  Any help would be appreciated.

If you want imessage, you need to be connected to wifi or cellular data.  note if your plan does not have data, then it will cost you data

As Dennis mentioned, you should leave it on. But because you have no data it won't work. Just stable iMessage. It will be less complicated that way.

Even if you have no data plan, you can still access to mobile data with Pay-per-use-rate. (Unless you ahve a data block on the account level)
So, if s/he leave data on and send/receive iMessage and/or update some apps in background, then s/he will get get data charge.
