No, it doesn't @levzy 

 

Picture messages, MMS, cost 16p each from your airtime credit.

Good Evening @levzy

You will need to have airtime credit to send a picture message, as these are not included in the goodybag allowances, these will cost you 16p per message upto 300kb in size.

Hello, goody bags don't include picture messages, this is something you would need air time credit for.

Sorry but picture messages (MMS) are not included in Goodybags. You will have to buy Airtime Pay-as-you-go to be able to send them.
***The difference between GOODYBAGS & AIRTIME: The 2 Giffgaff Tariffs***
*****GOODYBAG is a monthly allowance for Texts, Calls & Data, plus free Giffgaff to Giffgaff calls - it expires at the end of 30 or 31 days from when you bought it.
Goodybag minutes can be used to call any UK landline numbers that start with 01, 02, 03, and UK mobiles starting with 071 to 075 and 077 to 079.
*****AIRTIME is a PAY- AS-YOU-GO allowance which is used for Multimedia Message Services (MMS), used abroad, for outside the EU area & for 0870, 118 etc. numbers & lasts until it runs out. Plus for the first 3 months after top-up you have free Giffgaff to Giffgaff calls.
****AIRTIME Charges: Calls @ 15p a minute, Texts 5p, Data 5p per MB, Voicemail 8p a call.
+++++ Picture messages (MMS) to giffgaff and other mobiles (max 300KB) 16p per MMS+++++
(Goodybags do NOT include MMS)

------------
You can buy both types of credit from your account's Homepage at www.giffgaff.com
If you do decide on a Goodybag you will be able to tick for it to re-occur on the same day each month.
