    Could someone please explain what the 'Phone Radio' and 'Data Usage' options are for in the Device Menu Maxed Out Ultra patch.

    The phone radio is exactly that, your cellular service. If you turn it off, you won't get phone calls, texts and etc.

    Data is also exactly what it sounds like, text messages, email and web access. With it off, you can't get any of those. (Certain exceptions if you turn on WiFi)

    Having access to them makes it easier to disable them in certain instances, such as when you need to save on battery life.

    If data usage is off and you're not on WiFI, you should just be able to get phone calls, as far as I know.

    2 different protocols. Regular texts are SMS.

    MMS is for multi-media texts, so different and he was correct on that.
