    Yes, the blue bubble means that both of you are on iMessage instead of regular SMS.

    Anytime you are using iMessage it uses data so you should not incur SMS charges from your vendor. It does not matter where the sender and recipient are located. However, since you are using data lots of pictures and videos could cause overage charges if that applies on your cell phone plan.

    Well, iMessages (when they are “blue bubbles”) can also be sent and received with WiFi. It only uses mobile data if you are not connected to WiFi but to mobile data instead.
