Multi media message

I write long texts and when it goes over a certain amouth of characters it converts to a multi media message now I always thought this would cost more as it sends as a picture message no?
I was told by Vigin team yesterday and was told it won't that I can just text away as ive unlimited text I would like this verified please.

Re: Multi media message

Hi LilMo,

 

you are correct and you've been misinformed.

Long text messages that are converted by your phone into an MMS will incur a 40p charge.

Re: Multi media message

You have unlimited texts,but if a text exceeds 480 characters it is converted to MMS at 40p a time.
Depending on your phone there may be an app in the play store or App Store sropping you phone from converting them.
Also be aware that the new style emoji can cause the phone again to convert text to MMS

Re: Multi media message

Wow would you believe that, that Virgin Media would give bad advice. Ive only sent 2 that I let convert to MMS yesterday but I will look for that app would you have anyidea what it is called or I will maybe just do a search, yes.

Thank you for your kind and rewarding help JOnh its great to know the right way of that, she told me just to go ahead and type on no matter about it converting that because I have unlimited text it is okay. Just goes to show you. I wonder was that their way to make more money out of the public though.

Thanks once again

Maureen
