I recently got the $25 plan(250 min and unlimited texting)
The phone lacks decent ringtones. Would i be charged anything for downloading ringtones etc or downloading anything in general? I believe this is what data is. Would i be charged downloading a recieved picture in a text?
Under your plan terms, yes, you would be charged for downloading ringtones from a third party site. I downloaded a 30-second ringtone from myxer.com about a year ago and I was charged around $2.50 for the download.
Downloading a picture received in a text message would be fine, though. That wouldn't cost you anything.
