Recently picked up a Nokia Lumia 520 with just a text and talk plan. Here is the scenario. I dont want to accidently use data, but I still want to send picture messages. For now I have data turned off and use hot spots or at home to check email if needed, or if updates need to be done. Is there anyway in the settings to have the data on so pitcure mesaging works, yet not accidently use data for anything else. Thanks

In short, no. There's no way to program this phone to only use data for mms.

You have to change your APN settings to enable MMS but disable data. It is tricky and I am unsure how to do this with the Lumia 520 but here is a post for Samsung Ace 2 (Android).

Hopefully it leads you in the right direction.

Thanks. My wife got the Ace 2 and wanted to do it for her as well. She doesnt want data either, not even hot spots, but does want to be able to send and receive pictures
