    Do MMS messages use data from my data plan?

    I have the unlimited messages, unlimited minutes, and 2Gb data, on Canada and USA plan. It seems to me that MMS messages are using data from my data allotment. Is this normal? Most providers don't count MMS messages as data. Fizz does say Unlimited Text messages, so maybe they mean on SMS and not MMS. I guess I took it for granted that MMS was included in the Unlimited Text messages. Anybody else notice this?

    Does it cost data to receive MMS?

    I see a lot of question about sending MMS, but nothing about receiving them. I know that it differ by carrier, so I want to know if Fizz charges MMS when you receive them.
