Yo0u have to call in to koodo and they can block it on an account level.

Not that picture messages will be blocked too since they use the same data pipeline

IMO wifi should still allow you to send pics and receive pics as well seeing how wifi data is 1000xs better than any cell data. At least it used to before Koodo fubared the whole send/receive pic thing.

It was never, ever like that. And quite frankly this isn't a matter of opinion, it's a matter of technology and what it can and can't do.

Thank you for your answers :) You can also disable data directly in your phone. Please keep in mind that you can enable it and disable it whenever you need to send or receive picture messages (MMS).

Picture Messaging will not work on Wi-Fi only. A cellular data connection is required to transfer those types of messages. If you want to send pictures over Wi-Fi, you can use third party applications.

Hope that helps. -Daniel
