    But what about MMS? Do you still get that if data is off?

    Yes. MMS works when cell data "off", no billing for those bits.

    Wow, I had no idea! I know for my group texts, I don't get any messages (since they're all considered MMS, basically) including text, if I keep my data on (but I have Sprint post-paid)

    Android devices do require a mobile data connection to send/receive MMS on Verizon or XM. If you have an IPhones you can MMS over WiFi using Imessages.

    MMS works on XM Android with data off on the phone and no wifi. My sons Moto play does anyway.

    That too. Its an administrative choice to provide free MMS.

    The administrative settings do not have to act as their UIs indicate but all my results so far indicate that in airplane mode with wifi on, the mms and sms traverse wifi & WAN from the phone to a server which proxies the sending/receiving onto the cell network.

    More testing is possible to demonstrate the underlying packets and protocols and media used, if it becomes important to anyone’s wallet. Its all documented stuff, ANSI, ISO, T.whatever.bis, all that.

    I use to get MMS on WIFI when the data is turned off. Now with the 9.0 update I can only get the MMS with data turned on. I did not bother to go Xfinity store. I do not think there is any work around to get MMS back from WIFI. I like 9.0 on my Note 8 but that is the only complaint I have with the update. When I pay off the phone I am going to the unlimited plan. That is if Xfinity Mobile is still round by then. If not I will go with my family with to family mobile. I get an employee discount with them on 3 lines already.
