I received a multimedia message from a friend today and it would not download. Later one I tried to send one, but it wouldn't do it. I was connected to WiFi so assumed it may piggyback off that if necessary. Was having none of it until I turned on the mobile internet though.
All my previous phones have automatically sent the messages without me having to fool around with this. Is there a setting I have missed?

I understand the mms bit. What I wondered was whether the system will automatically browse the web or pull emails using the WiFi if both it and mobile data is turned on. Incidentally, the hd voice calling feature, does that also require me to have data running, I would assume not.

Okay, I know that it's impossible to send/receive MMS's without a connection. However, on my old N8, just by having an MMS APN set up would allow the phone to access temporarily he Network (no charges) to get the MMS, even if I haven't yet set up any access point for data connection. But with my Lumia 900, I can't just do that. I have to have both APNs set up and if I were to be sending an MMS, I will be charged twice, one for MMS itself and another for the Data Connection. It's never happened to me before :(, even when I had those old dumb cell phone phones. Now, apparently, I have a smartphone which cannot do something that an ordinary cell phone can do hands down. Does this happen with Windows 8 as well?
