Using MMS instead of data for pictures GoPhone

I really messed up.  I had $2 unlimited a day phone and text but chose to purchase 100 MB of data out of curiousity.  I do need that data for apps like Google Maps but do not need it for picture messaging because I can send a picture of sufficient size through MMS.  Having said that though now that I am using the data and am off of the $2 access charge can I send a MMS using 160 bytes of data or am I using the 500 or so KB it takes for the picture?  At that rate about 30 pictures and I am done, when I could have sent unlimited pictures through MMS.

 

Also, though a bit unrelated.  Can I get the $50 unlimited phone and data for the F160?  I think that is still considered a feature phone, and not a smartphone, but I am unsure.

Not really sure about the data/MMS part of your post...?

But for part two, yes, you can use a feature phone like the F160 on the $50 Unlimited Talk, Text, and Web plan.
