What does MMS Block add-on mean? Does this block data, MMS or both? I am looking for blocking both of them.

Hi Cristian,
The "Data Block w/ Pic Msg" add-on allows you to block data but let MMS go through.
MMS is included in your text anyway, so there is no need to block it.

Hi,
Thanks,
What I want is to block data and mms, both of them. I don't want to pay for the add-on. How do I do this? I know that the mms block add-on is free, but does this block the data too?

You could turn off Cellular data/Mobile data in your phone, and that would disable the cellular data usage. It will theoretically disable both data and MMS. It is free.

However, you should also check the data usage regularly to make sure there is no data usage accidentally by your cellphone.

Hi
Thanks. I know that but it is not what I am looking for.
What I want is to block data and mms, both of them. Having it blocked by Koodo. But I don't want to pay for the add-on. How do I do this? I know that the mms block add-on is free, but does this block the data too?

It is not free, as far as I know.
It cost $2/month for the add-on (on the selfserve) if you want Koodo block it for you.
