23. Are MMS messages free of charge when received abroad in roaming?

It depends on your tariff.

Check with your operator to see if you will be charged and how much.

In the case of MMS messages received in countries of the European Economic Area (EEA)1 and originating from the EEA, as from 15 June 2017, the amount payable will be the same as the amount you pay when receiving MMS messages in your home country. However, if your operator has chosen to implement the Fair Use Policy (FUP) for roaming, and if you exceed certain Fair Use Policy rules, you may have to pay an additional surcharge.

For more information on situations where the Fair Use Policy is exceeded and where this fee may be charged, see the answer to the question “What are the conditions for the implementation of Fair Use Policy (FUP) in roaming between countries of the European Economic Area (EEA)", especially table 2.
