Can I get full size pics from thumbnails without paying?

It depends on the thumbnail. If the quality as well as the size has been reduced, then any large image you get from the thumbnail is going to be very bad quality.

The short answer is yes. Any good image-editing programme can enlarge any size of image in any format. But no software can re-create the information that was thrown away in the process of reducing the many pixels of the original down to the few pixels of a thumbnail. All you'll get will be the pixels of the thumbnail spread over a larger area.
