I have picture messaging on my iphone 4 and on my plan but I never recieve pictures through text unless I turn my data on, why is this? I'd like to recieve pictures through text without spending and turning on my data.

Sending picture messages via text uses the data connection to transfer the picture. It's how the HSPA network was designed and there is no way around it.
