It's 2017. Why limit yourself to MMS when there is a ton of messaging apps that use data and have far better options including picture sharing?

I'm having the same issue, ported my number over on Friday when my billing cycle changed. Just tested it out sending a pic to a friend without and iPhone, and my usage is showing $.30 for a picture message. Luckily I don't know too many people that I don't use iMessage with. So I'm not going to worry about it yet. But if anyone has a solution, send it over. I'm on the $56 QC plan.
Hmm, yes I'm using VVM but I added it myself, it wasn't working at first, so I set up regular VM, deleted it then re-added it and it's been working fine since then. I did get billed for it twice at $2 and again $2 but I think it might be the first bill thing and it's only $2 so I'm going to wait and see what happens for the next bill before I do anything.
I've got a BC number so I'd rather not draw any attention to my account, but I do have a legit Quebec address I can use as my family is from Quebec. But still easier to not have to get into that.
And I made the VVM change after I ported my BC number in.
How did it go talking with support? Was there any hint that what you were doing wasn't allowed?
Ah, so the first time you called in you hadn't ported your number over yet?
Well this is interesting, 2 days left in my billing cycles, I sent a pic txt message today, noticed no additional charge in the self sever app, so to double check logged in self serve on website, sure enough, pic message sent, but no charge. Weird how it may just have corrected itself. Will have to just keep an eye and see if the luck keeps going.
Very interesting. That would be great news. I'll try the same thing after my billing cycle is up and report back. I haven't had to send any so it hasn't been an issue but am happy to pay .30c to test it out.
Well sent about a dozen pics of txt last few days and no charges but appear in the txt/mms list. Makes me happy it resolved itself.
Glitch resolved. Had to send a picture message and no charge. Looked back at my past messages. No charges for them as well. Issue resolved.
