I have a nokia smart phone; i do not have a data plan but i do have unlimited photo and text messaging. But for some reason i can not receive photos... if i turn on my cellular data will it charge me if i turn it on or when i text people?
You need to have data enabled in order to send and receive picture messages. You will not be charged for downloading picture messages. However, make sure your background apps are closed so they don't use data. To guarantee you won't be ACCIDENTLY charged for background data, I would be connected to WiFi when I re-enable my data. And no you won't be charged for texting people.
