    Hey, this doesn't relate to me personally but my aunt just got a Droid a few weeks ago I guess and asked me a question that I didn't know; surprisingly lol. She said something along the lines of: When she tries to send a picture it says "Converting message to MMS" (I told her that was normal lol) "Charges may apply."...THIS part, the "Charges may apply" part, is the part I am stuck on. I've never seen this on mine. We have the same plan I think, unlimited texting and calling and such...she is sending the picture to a Verizon phone...I mean I told her it is probably just a "btw, it COULD charge you" sorta thing and that it more than likely won't.

    Any ideas?

    I get that message too. I think it's just a warning for those who don't have a plan. Even though some users who do have one may also see it, it doesn't really pertain to them, me being one of them.

    That is a "One size fits all" warning for those who do not have a pics/flix plan. For those plans, there are extra charges similar to if you use more texts than your plan allows. I personally don't know of any plan on the Verizon network that doesn't have pics/flix included with texting. But then again, I'm not an expert on the plans that Verizon offers.

    I send massive amounts (500+) of MMS messages and have never had an additional charge. I also have an unlimited texting plan.

    I would suggest to her that she contact Verizon and ask them what her texting plan allows (as far as pics/flix are concerned).
