Does anyone else have the $30 plan...unlimited text message and video and picture messaging?and 100 minutes? but you cant get your picture messages, because you have to turn your data off. But when you turn your data back on to download a picture...it still won't come through??. This is getting very frustrating...I have 2 messages I cant recieve, If I leave my data on...I get charged $7.50 every few days...from my apps that are built in on my phone...are getting updates. Please help me get this straight....

On your phone, go to playstore>settings>Auto updates> select over wifi only.
Also depending on your phone, the answer in this link may apply to you http://community.koodomobile.com/kood...

I do have unlimited texts and picture messaging, but they told me I have to turn my data off so the app updates aren't using data, then when the data is off...I can't receive picture messages...

Also if you turn on data while connected to a wifi source (wifi does not even ned an internet connection) no data would be used while you download your picture messages

Wifi on while Data is on.

This way Data leakage wont occur. But the Data pipeline will be open to allow MMS downloads
