I've never been able to get pictures through text messages. Is this an add-on? is there anything that I need to do to my phone?
Thanks

You need data. Is it enabled in your phone?Keep in mind if you're on a text/talk plan data charges might apply by using picture messaging.

I don't have data, I'm just on a text/talk plan. I was just curious about how this works, Canadian phone companies are complicated... Thank you

The recent talk and text plans include picture messaging. The data charges would be from data leakage from apps updating in the background.
If you turn on data to send/receive picture messages, you should connect to a strong wifi connection to prevent any inadvertant data use
