    I had an LG Optimus and did NOT have to have mobile data on when I was connected to WIFI to download a picture attached to a text message, now I do. Why? I have my auto retrieve on and have powered down the phone. It is new. I also have to have mobile data on in order to receive mass texts. WHy will it noe work with WIFI?

    Text and multimedia messages use your SIM card and network account. They come via the network.
    You can get third party messaging apps that use Wi-Fi and use them even without a SIM...

    If your carrier gives you wifi calling, and if your phone supports it, you can probably get the SMS/MMS messaging to also use the wifi system when you have wifi calling turned on.
    Otherwise, SMS/MMS messaging requires mobile data be turned on and available.
