if im out of the house and on 3G cuz i have no wifi, im not getting charged for imessage and sending pics through imessage, am i? like does it count as my data or is imessage free and just another version of texting..? also can u turn 3G off?
iMessage uses your data and does not count as text at all. So when you send a pic over iMessage it is using up your data, if you send the pic as a text its free of charge as long as you have unlimited text and pic in your plan. To send it as a text you can simply double click the message after you click send and select send as text. As well just go into your settings and under messages turn iMessage off, while your not on wifi if you would like.
