Thread: MMS rip off!

    MMS rip off!
    Just seen my latest bill for my iPhone SE and see there is an MMS message charge when I get "free messaging".

    Why is MMS vs SMS and why would the charge me extra for it?

    This should be something you take up with your carrier, not us.

    Hang on Raz0rEdge, I only asked the question, what is an MMS message vs a "normal" SMS?

    Here's an example/discussion of the differences
    One example of how the difference can cost you money.

    As Ashwin mentioned, finding the exact culprit may require a call to your provider.

    MMS = Multimedia Messaging Service
    SMS = Short Message Service

    Back in the day, SMS was deemed anything that was just text and MMS was anything that involved audio/video/pictures. These days, they are grouped together simply as "messaging". If you are seeing a fee on this, they might not be combining them and charging you separately. So talk to them and have them explain it to you.
