I think this functionality should have been included for a great while now, I guess because the fact that we can text each other via MMS picture text, that’s why it wasn’t needed, but I think this is very useful now, because it’s free through skype. If you try to text MMS a picture to someone from outside your country you would know how much it would cost, it’s better to do it within skype 🙂
