iPhone 5 on StraightTalk

I've been digging around the forum and I've found that MMS/SMS does not work on the iPhone 5 with StraightTalk. Does this mean that I won't be able to send/receive texts from non-iPhone phones, or that I can't send/receive picture messages? Are there any other features that won't work with StraightTalk? Thanks!

I'm using an iPhone right now on straight talk(actually porting out today because of their stupid throttling) but what you need is a T-Mobile sim card to get it to work. If you have an at&t phone, make sure you get i t unlocked first.

Do I need MMS? Can't I just use iMessage, or is that only for texting other iPhones? Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure I know what I'm getting if I choose ST. Thanks!
