I got the $30 plan with no data and was told I would be able to send pictures via text but it is not working. Anyone know why this is?

Data is not turned on. You need that on in order to send pictures.

Data needs to be enabled to use picture messaging.

Picture messaging is included so no data charges will be applied for data used for picture messaging, however there will be charges for any background data being used while Data is enabled

Picture messages need to use data, you won't be charged for that data though. You need to enable data, but be careful to make sure other apps aren't trying to sneak in background data cos you can get charged for that
