What I dont understand is why does my data have to be turned on to open a picture message?
Your data didn't have to be on to open it; your data needed to be on to receive (download) it.
As your said, you hit download, waited and waited.
It's like trying to connect to the internet with no connection- same principle on the phone.
I don't have mine in front of me right now but if you go into settings, data usage- you can set your data limit since you no longer have unlimited.
