    Hey MR,
    So I was going back and forth with my wifey on my company iPhone, sending pics and such, kind of thoughtlessly. Is my company able to monitor my picture messaging without physical access to the phone?

    Nope. And don't be stupid, stop sending naked pics to your wife from a work phone. Use your own phone.
    Oh and use a better thread title.

    data through a VPN is encrypted, so no one else will see the data, but company policy may allow it to be decrypted for their own info. so they may be able to see what data is being sent depending on their rules and regulations. this may be to keep people utilizing the work VPN for private use and traffic. it may be a violation of their use policy so i would be careful.

    I've heard that they're not able to view picture messging though. True?

    probably not, its may just be seen as data use, not specific photos. i know this issue always arises with people on blackberry devices and if their company can see their usage and pics over their BES servers. bottom line is that its a work phone, using a work VPN and should not be used as a personal picture messaging device according to company policy. unless otherwise stated, its walking on thin ice and i wouldnt risk it if i were you guys.
