I think that you're correct in that other providers don't charge a surcharge or data for MMS.
Regarding the PT packages, I personally think the $0.25/MMS surcharge should be eliminated. Since the monthly voice plans use data to send/receive MMS, I would understand charging for data transport, but it seems like overkill to also charge $0.25/MMS on top of data transport.
While we're on the subject, why is there a surcharge at all, even on the Standard Plan? Data transport I understand, but not the $0.25/MMS surcharge...
Oh, and if you're talking about the FAQ (and WiKi) on HoFo, some people created that a few years ago, and did a good job getting it set up, but I never participated, and I think the people that did are no longer around, or have no time to keep it up anymore. Maybe a moderator could give a tutorial to anybody interested, and with the time to do it, on how to update the WiKi?
