Can I use iMessage on a 15.00 prepaid text plan? The add indicates pic messaging is included without adding data so the iMessage should also work without having to use wifi or purchase a data add on. Can someone confirm?

Sorry but iMessage requires a data connection. Traditional MMS is included in the 15$ base plan

It' two different ways of functionning. MMS is Koodo while iMessage is Apple. I once recevied some picture message thourhg iMessage and asked myself why did my data cap has been reached so fast. It's then that I discovered the iMessage is same thing as aFacebook messenger for iPhone. So yeah, better turn off iMessage and you would be able to send and receive MMS!

To clarify, iMessage requires Internet access of some capacity; WiFi or mobile Data is fine, but it's not "included" because it's a separate service from the provider.
