    Hi, I'm new to Verizon network after being with Sprint for last 8 years...One thing I'm noticing is that I am unable to send/receive MMS text over Wifi. I get message saying "mobile data is turned off. Message will be sent when mobile data is turned on". Am I to assume this is exclusive to Verizon? Did not have this limitation with Sprint. However, my "wifi only" Galaxy tablet using the "Verizon Messages" app can send and receive mms text just fine. Is this the case, or is there something in my settings I need to check?

    Just keep mobile data enabled and it will send. Sprint allowed wifi sending for MMS but Verizon won't.

    I figured as much. Kind of sucks that my Wifi only Tablet can do what Verizon won't let the phone do.

    For the same reason why it doesn't allow email to be sent out through an SMTP server?

    Incorrect for T-Mobile now. They allow it due to Wifi calling... Which allows MMS, text, and calls to be done over wifi.

    Wish verizon would get on that wagon as they complain that they need bandwidth. Allowing wifi calls mms etc would conserve verizons bandwidth.

    Now why would they do that when they can simply make money instead of allowing something to be done on/with the phone for "free"?
