    Default Messaging problem


    Recently, I bought an HTC Hero (With Android 2.1) from a friend of mine.
    Now, the problem is that i can't download or send multi-media messages, even if I'm connected to Wi-Fi.
    It seems to work if I'm connected to "Mobile data", but the problem is it's expensive as heck, since i don't have a deal for mobile data in my subscription.

    My question is: Is there any way to be connected to 3G without being connected to "Mobile data"?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. Has to go through mobile data.

    The one trick that may help you on occasion is if you turn on mobile data only while on wifi.

    For example, I do this without a mobile data plan when I am at home or starbucks, etc on wifi. It appears that all my apps will update through wifi and I can send and receive MMS provided I have mobile data turned on prior to sending or receiving a message.

    So far, no mobile data charges from t-mobile.
