  • AT&T Announces MMS


    Better late than never, right?

    Millions of Apple customers will presumably mark their calendars today. Indeed, a day Apple customers have long awaited is finally upon us.

    On September 25th, AT&T will at long last flip the switch on MMS service for Apple's iPhone 3G and 3GS customers.

    Apple says that MMS (which allows instant messages to include embedded multimedia) will be enabled through a software update beginning that day. It should be noted, though, that the original iPhone will not be capable of transmitting MMS.

    The announcement came today on the company's website.

    We know that iPhone users will embrace MMS. The unique capabilities and high usage of the iPhone’s multimedia capabilities required us to work on our network MMS architecture to carry the expected record volumes of MMS traffic and ensure an excellent experience from Day One. We appreciate your patience as we work toward that end.
    It's a long awaited move that, according to Kent German at CNET, finally inducts the iPhone "into the cell phone family."

    Apple customers have been extraordinarily patient in waiting for this development (there have even been lawsuits inspired by the lack of MMS on the iPhone). So for many of us - but especially the litigious ones - September 25th simply can't come soon enough.

    Congratulations to Apple, the iPhone, and to all of us!

      I have thought about that a couple of times. My entire family is on AT&T, and almost every one of my friends is as well. I'm the only one that lives in an area that is really crappy as far as service goes. Some of my family are in areas that are decent but I'm in an area that royally sucks. All but my dad live in areas that have 3G but that doesn't stop dropped calls. I stay with AT&T because other than the spotty service, I am really satisfied with them. I think I get charged a little much but I can deal with that, I dealt with it with the 2G and the 3G so I can deal with it on the 3GS. If I were to unlock it the only service I could use is T-Mobile and I'd still only have edge speeds. So it's stupid, but I don't think switching is worth it to me. I like the free in network calling, not limited to 5 or 10 people and I like the rollover minutes. You can probably tell I've never really researched it, but overall I'm happy with everything with AT&T but the service. When the iPhone goes to another carrier I'll let the mass exodus die down and pick which one turns out to be the best.
