Gv allows mms using 2g

I'm trying to help a prospective customer understand 2G fallback, and have a question: Would it be possible to send/receive a picture via mms while on throttled 2G? Would larger file size pictures be a problem, other than the time involved to send or receive?10:54:16
Unfortunately, MMS messages (Picture Messages) will not go through while the service is throttled to 2G connection.10:58:41
Thanks. Is this limitation a specific policy of Tello 2G fallback, or would it be a universal problem at 2G speeds?10:55:54
No, this will be a set up on Tello's side. 11:02:47
Thanks, Josue! I'll share this information, and remind them that they can bump up a level in the plan for a month if it becomes critical for them.
From that chat, it appears that mms will not function with Tello 2G fallback-- but that may not be a universal situation with all 2G fallback suppliers.
I think one can set up a Tello plan to allow it to bump up to the next data level in months when you used the full allotment. (Although you should confirm this, as it's from my memory.) For example if 500mb would typically be enough data, you'd pay for the 500mb plan when you stayed under 500mb, but step up to the 1GB plan when needed. (I know you can do this manually, if not automatically.)
