As per title.

I need mobile data on to send / receive mms. Is this by design? Is it an apn setting? Is it a network issue?

Using Vodafone in Australia


  • In France, no Mobile Data = no MMS

    But if you use the RCS, only Wifi is enough.

  • It sends a digital image so mobile data needs to be on. If the mms will deduct data from your data plan or not is up to your carrier

  • Shouldn't MMS automatically connect to mobile data in the background?

    & in Australia it's included with calls (not data)

  • Then this will not respect your intention !

    If you disabled Mobile data, nothing should re-enable it automatically.
