newbie question re:MMS

Recommended Posts

I'm of a generation that didn't grow up with text messaging, so I'm a bit confused about MMS. From what I understand it's the ability to send pictures or other media over the phone. If you have an iPhone though, could you not just use email?

The reason I ask is that I'm thinking of getting an iPhone for my husband (he doesn't have a cell phone) so that I could contact him at work, if needed. A basic plan (Fido in Canada) would cost $15 voice/$25 500MB data for a total of $40/mth, which seems quite reasonable. If we don't pony up extra money for MMS would we miss it seeing we hardly even know what it is to begin with?

Thanks for any opinions!

If I remember correctly- that's the exact same argument that Steve Jobs used when he introduced the iPhone as to why it didn't have MMS (you can just send an e-mail). If e-mail works great for you, then I don't see any reason why you would need to shell out the extra money (I guess it costs extra in Canada?) for the MMS.
