Charged for incoming multimedia messages - samsung s9

Good afternoon, 

I have been charged for incoming media messages and can't seem to stop it! My phone automatically creates a group message when I receive a photo - so I get charged twice! Has anyone had the same issue? Any solutions? Thank you.

@samstaffs you can turn off sending of MMS messages in the message settings. You will still be able to receive them but the phone won't send with MMS turned off.

Open message app and tap the 3 dots. Choose settings and look for the MMS options.
