iPhone 3GS on Vodafone UK - Does "unlimited texts" mean unlimited MMS as well?

Hi folks,

I have ordered myself an iPhone from Vodafone which I will receive tomorrow - which is basically:

16GB White 3GS, 24 month.
300 mins, Unlimited texts and unlimited web (1GB fair use).

But here is the thing - does "unlimited inclusive texts" include unlimited MMS messages? I had a look at the pricing table, and it says that picture messages cost 36p each, and video 60p each, though these are labelled as "out of bundle charges"...

If I were to guess, I'd imagine I have to pay for every MMS message on top of my contract - but it's worth checking just in case.

Thanks in advance.

if it's like o2 they will be extra but I would personally use email since you have unlimited data therefore unlimited email (upto the 'unlimited cap')

Yeah, I'd imagine I'd have to pay extra. Oh well. Although good thinking with the email, I'll just do that!

And now to wait for my delivery any time between 0800 and 1800... Argh! Way to long to wait!!

Not sure about on contract by my o2 PAYG iPhone SIM would have 500 free sms messages if I topped up with 15 and this included MMS (MMS they said is equivelant to 2 SMS)

Unsure if this would apply to Vodafone, probably best to call them up to be honest.

After my O2 contract ended I moved to a 30 day sim-only contract with Voda and have 300 mins, unlimited texts and 500mb data for 15pm.

MMS does not form part of the unlimited texts.

Vodafone is not like o2 where you use 4 of your included messages for an mms message.

On vodafone they charge you for mms's as they have said 'out of bundle charges'

NO!

MMS are charged outside your text message allowance, I learnt that the hard way!

I'm on the original O2 35 tariff - 600 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited Web. I 'phoned them yesterday to see if it was possible to "upgrade" to unlimited texts as advertised.

I was advised that if I use MMS to any extent, it's best to stay with the original "500" option because they are now charged for. Needless to say, I've left things as they are!

Glad I stumbled on this, I was about to do the same thing, don't use a lot of texts but thought I might as well give it a go, glad I found this first!

Im on O2 - originally had the 500txts option, and upgraded to unlimited.
Before MMS costed me 4 inclusive txts, and with the unlimited txts it still uses 4 of my "inclusive" txts! - which basically means I have 500txts /4 worth of MMSs to send as TXTs done come out of the inclusive allowance

You sure about that? When I called up to inquire about the unlimited text option I was told specifically that MMS were no longer part of that tariff and that they would be charged for...
