Prepaid questions: video messaging and texting/calling while traveling


Two prepaid questions: 1. Does the prepaid base plan include video messaging as well? I see there's text and picture messaging, but nothing about video messaging? Is it not possible to send video messages on prepaid, period? 2. Is there no way to text or make calls on prepaid while you're traveling in another country? Many thanks.

MMS includes video messages

Prepaid currently doesn't function outside of Canada
By Picture messaging, they mean MMS* and that includes videos. You can use your Prepaid phone all over Canada, but not outside of the country. *Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia* content to and from mobile phones. *Multimedia includes a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, or interactivity content forms.
