I'm a huge Android fan and also the founder of the DroidLessons website. I started obsessing about the Android platform as soon as I got my HTC EVO phone in mid-2010. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with learning all that I can about the Android OS and sharing that knowledge with my friends and family.

    Seems I have to be connected to my data package (4G) to send a photo text message. Why is that? A regular text message goes through without the data package being turned on.
