Hey guys, I send a lot of iMessages and most of the times they include an image.

However sometimes of it fails then it'll send it as an mms (as I have "send SMS is iMessage unavailable).

My question is. If I turn off MMS in the settings; can I still receive other peoples mms's (as that's free anyway) or does it block incoming and outgoing mms's.

Thanks for any answer :)

It would turn off the reception of MMS as well.

So if someone sends me an SMS do I get a text message saying they tried to send an mms? Or does it get lost in cyber space with them paying for an mms and expecting a reply :)

Thanks for the help .?:)

I don't get why you would turn it off.

Because if the iMessage with picture fails.....it will surely send my picture as an MMS and thus charge me 50p per message which would be quite a surprise on my bill lol
