on text its not allowing me to send pics unless mobile data is active, however, Im on wifi so it shouldn't be needed. Am I totally wrong on this?? I dont want to use up data and pay extra. I have unlimited text and pic so Im nit sure if this is normal.

MMS requires mobile data to be enabled. It cannot be sent over WiFi. Any data used for MMS is not charged to your account.

You do, however, have to ensure that no other app is authorized to use mobile data as you would be charged for anything other than picture messaging.

As Ivan said, it requires data unless you have iMessage or any other 3rd party messagin app where MMS can be sent through wifi!
