Charged for receiving pictures in a text

Can anybody advise why I am being charged a pound when I receive a picture via text when I have no control over whether I want to receive it or not?

How can I set my Galaxy Ace so that I don't get charged for pictures I have no interest in seeing?

Thanks

Bowzo

You should not be charged for receiving a picture message. I assume it is from someone you know.

However, do you have a data allowance, if not I suspect the phone is using some data in the background and you are getting charged the £1 per day rate. 

If this is the case you can always switch mobile data off.

What if it's a MMS from a premium service?

Thanks for the info, looks like I had the phone 3G enabled without realising so have turned this off, hopefully it wont happen again.
