    It seems that the only way I can receive picture files in a text message is if I have my 'Data enabled' check box checked. Is this the way its supposed to work?

    Yes, absolutely. MMS delivery needs mobile data for delivery.

    Thanks for the response. Oddly I had a basic LG phone before this and there was no issue. You'd think a smart phone would be 'smarter'...
