I cutrently have a samaung galaxy grand prime. I would like to be able to send pictures and also send long messages in one text to my friends. I have a plan that doesnt inckude data and we also went ahead and got the data blockage so i didnt acccuently turn it on and create a huge bill. Can I stillsend pictures with this blockage on? If so how and will it charge me extra.

Hi Baby Gal,
How did you block your data currently? by adding an add-on or doing it manually in your phone?

If you had the add-on (which cost $2) then you could enable mobile data in your phone and you can send MMS free. It is a simple way and don't require much work.

If you don't have the add-on, it will be little complicated, there was some long threads about it in the forum. It would require some manual modifications of APN in your phone.

There's a 3rd possibility as well. If you have a data block add-on which is free and blocks all kind of data, then you would need to remove that one in order to apply one of the above solutions.
