I have the $20 Canada Wide Talk & Text plan. I don't have data, and don't want to be charged extra fees. So, I wanted to ask how the picture messaging feature works.

Do I need to enable data for it? And If I want to send a picture message, how do I ensure I don't get charged for using data?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 X running stock Android 4.0.4 firmware, if that helps.

Yes you have to have data enabled to send picture messages. Fondo this thread to find out how to send picture messages without getting charged for data used through other things.
