How can I stop my phone from sending MMS?

For a while I was able to send an SMS right from my Galaxy S4. Since it got a reboot I try to email the same person and it shows up as a MMS. This is a pain because I have to use up data to a simple email. But it only happened after it was rebooted

I would like to text a contact single SMS not MMS?

I have a certain contact that I have been texting. It was texting OK going through OK. But after I deleted the texts and put this contact back I went to text this person and it will send the text MMS.. I have tried: Going to settings but I am not a very phone savvy and don't know how to manage contacts and change default from MMS to SMS or groups. I think it was caused by: This particular contact group and others just automatically receive texts MMS
