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.

Some providers will block the ports for everything else if you call them ask them to block data but they will leave mms and other types of texts open if it is part of your plan.

Don koodo uses port 80 for the net and mms so it's not possible at koodo to port block.
