    Hello- my FIL has an LG5 and he cannot open mms while connected to WiFi, it works fine on data but once connected he cannot receive messages. He has a small amount of data and keeps going over his limit. Any help on how to fix this would be great.

    MMS can only transmit through mobile data. There is a way to force that to stay on while connected to Wi-Fi, but that may then cause other issues if the data plan is so small. So your safest option may be to use another messaging service all together.

    Yeah true , some carriers allow you to send over wifi but to retrieve I believe data only .

    Often times, any MMS over wifi ends up requiring that you use the carrier's texting app.
