Does unlimited text and picture messaging include video messaging? Does sending video messages use any data? What about sending photos/video in iMessage, does this use data?

It does include video messaging and while the data is not counted from MMS, any applications requiring internet access will use data and that you will be charged for(or data will be used accordingly).

iMessage is a messenger and requires data to use. So you can use it on 3g or wigi.

Sorry I'm still a bit confused. So if I am on Wifi and send a video message, will that use my data?
Also, I see that you said iMessage requires data to be used.. but I only have 200mb of data a month, so will using iMessage use up my data?

No, because wifi is wireless internet(still trying to figure out why people can't tell the difference between 3g data and wifi).

Yes, iMessage will use your data because it's an instant messenger that requires data access. I already stated this in my last reply.
