I think I'm going to star diving into this topic. Now I'm not up to speed on Prepaid so you prepaid experts will need to help me.

As far as I know, with what I've read, data on PostPaid accounts is required in order to send MMS, but MMS on PrePaid, the data is blocked on Koodo's end to prevent the additional data usage, correct?

I think so since none of the prepaid plans include data but they all include mms with the unlimited texting.

Correct, Myke! You bring up a great point in fact :) If MMS works on prepaid without a data booster (and it does), then why should it not work with postpaid that way too eh?

Instead of a data block, postpaid members should be able to request the flex data to be removed while still being able to use MMS!

Yep, I worked in the IT department of a rather large company as a software consultant and it was great fun to be the mediator between the end users and the technical guys :) First thing we had to tell them that CAN'T is not an option :D

The sad part is when IT say they can but give an enormous quote to make the end user think inefficiency is better than fixing things :(

Well any time I received a mms message on prepaid if Ă® there are any pictures attached I can't receive them unless I have a data booster activated

Activated or just your data tuned on?

I can 100% confirm that you can send and receive pictures without a data booster as long as data is turned on on the device itself. I know this because I have a teenaged son who sends/receives pictures on the daily and does not have any active data boosters.
