Is there a way to stop iMessage from downloading everything automatically?
I have a limited data plan, and when someone sends me a large file, such as a video, it automatically downloads and sucks my data. In apps that function properly such as wechat, you have to choose to open the video/file before it opens. In iMessage they think they’re doing you a favor by downloading in the background, but this is not a welcome feature when it costs me my data without my permission. I could not allow iMessage access to data use, but then I receive no iMessages at all and that’s not ideal.
