Texting and picture/video

I have my first smartphone ordered, an Iphone5.  I did not select a texting plan as I probably will never text.  My questions are.

1.  If someone sends me a text, I will have to pay .20 cents. Can texting be turned off?

 

2. Same question for picture/video, except it will be .30 cents.

 

3. Can pictures be sent via my gmail ?  Or received?

 

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but I am still using a GO Phone and know nothing.

You can request a text block on a cell phone, no one wil be able to text you at all with the exception of carrier sent texts that are free anyway

No question is stupid. Smiley Happy Will you be using your iPhone on a prepaid plan, not that it makes any difference.

 

I'm sorry that I don't know the answer to your questions about blocking texting or being charged if you receive one, but I'm sure someone else will have an answer to that for you.

 

Pictures can be sent and received through your gmail...that would use your data plan. Your friends would have to send them to your gmail address. I just tested it ..sent myself a pic. Smiley Happy
