Turn off picture messaging on Huawei Mate P20 Pro?

Hi - I have a Huawei Mate P20 Pro. Does anyone know how to turn off picture messaging?

I keep ending up with 50p charges when I accidentally hit an emoji button or I send a picture thinking I'm on Whatsapp.

Do not know of an actual setting on the phone 😞

If you do not need credit above your allowances on the SIM, you can set the cap at "use allowances only" in your online account, this stops a MMS from sending.

You can try deleting the MMS part of the APN settings, but I'm not sure if these would just automatically download again?.

In a few days one of the Forum Team should respond, maybe it could be something they can turn off their end.

Hi there skinnybloke

 

Thank you for posting on our forum pages.

 

Unfortunately there is not setting which we can adjust on your account to stop picture messages.

 

If you'd like to consider adding a spending cap onto your account as suggested above then please let us know.

Have you tried looking at the settings in your messaging app?

I haven't got any experience with your particular device but I'd expect there to be settings for MMS usage. 'MMS - Creation Mode -> Restricted' should help if it's there. Not as robust as a spending cap but may be an option for you to try.
