Welcome to Vodafone Community
I'm on PAYG1(Switch to PAYG1 a couple months ago)
My data was off and WiFi was on.
I get notification of MMS.
Before I get to it, I receive a call.
After call I turn on data to get MMS picture, and click icon to start downloading.
A few seconds later, before picture is finished. I get a text saying I have spent £1.
No other phone usage today.
Does it cost to receive a MMS?
Are you charged for that data?(I've not noticed it in past)
Even if data for MMS is charged. Isn't data 20p for 5MB? (Picture was 250KB)
The daily charge for PAYG 1 is £1.00 and this is charged when the phone makes a connection to the network for outgoing.
MMS are sent and received over the network using a mobile data connection, when you opened the message the phone would have made a connection to the network and you would have downloaded data.
I always consider MMS becoming rather outdated, there are alternatives available where you will be able to send and receive over a WiFi connection. Examples are WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber Messenger.
Thanks. When I saw the changes made on the 12th, I was so focused on them reducing the 500MB down to 50MB. I didn't notice the change from 20p a text/call/5MB up to £1, to just a flat £1 daily charge for using text/call/data.
As a low usage customer. It's become too expensive on Vodafone. I'll have to find an alternative provider.
