  • AT&T MMS Already Working for Some Folks?


    Looks like some users are already receiving and sending MMS just fine on the AT&T US network. ModMyi.com member yotelefonotresg sent us some legit-looking screenshots of MMS coming through just fine on AT&T (yes, I'm fully aware you can do that easily on T-Mobile by changing the carrier name, but we've received decent enough proof to ask if anyone else is seeing this).

    How bout you guys - any AT&T users able to send out MMS or receive them yet? EDIT: reports keep pouring in, looks like its true. AT&T is gradually turning on MMS throughout the US!

    AT&T yesterday announced they'd have MMS ready by September, through a YouTube video (see below) you've probably already seen, by the new[er] AT&T talking head, Seth. I like Seth. He's a person, and he talks about AT&T crap that's been going on - straight up, and up front. Of course, he doesn't fix it... but he's a nice guy, right? I mean, that counts for something? Anything?

      When I go to change plans I don't get anything other than the iPhone options. I'm assuming they are blocking it based on IMEI and ICCID. So does anyone have it working for more then a day or two that doesn't have a family plan?

      The sim swap trick may work for a day or so but it will eventually get reset by ATT. Its not the .ipcc file (thats just one step). You have to get ATT to enable it on the network end. If it works for you for good and never resets then they have opened up the network for you account. Congrats!

      Just spent 3 hours dicking around with this and have finally got MMS to work on my 3GS 3.0 FW. This is what I had to do. I followed the steps to update my carrier from AT&T 4.0 to 5.0 by updating the .ippc file, then since I was getting a red "!" I tried the switching SIMS and called AT&T to have them fix my plan. What a pain in the ***, but it works now. Can't wait to call them back on the 25th and tell them the iPhone I smashed has healed itself haha.

      Anyway, this does work on 3.0 with a little work.

      Yes, you have to correct your voicemail settings after upgrading to the 5.0 carrier file!

      Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data

      Visual Voicemail
      APN: acds.voicemail
      Username: LEAVE EMPTY
      Password: LEAVE EMPTY

      I had some AT&T "tech" tell me that I had a device problem, rather than a network one, when I called for help with my Visual Voicemail. He was all ready to completely reset my phone until I received a picture message while speaking with him. Uh, no thanks dude!

      I've tried it, no dice. I'D LOVE to do the sim swap thing, but the other person on my account is my wife, who has the 2g phone. The picture thinger is a nice upgrade, and tethering too. some of us will just have to wait and see. Congrats to those who got it to work...lucky...

      Correction: just tried it. It works!!!!!!!! Im glad to have it back!

      I had it working for like 2 weeks, and then when I jail broke it, it stopped. Stupid decision, because I restore my phone because winter board was slowing it down too much. I have never gotten it back.

      Ok so after reading this thread and doing a bunch of different settings. I finally got mms to work.

      What i did was update the 5.0 carrier file. Then i switched my sim with my wifes lg phone. I then sent a mms through it( i dont know whether this affected anything). I made a phone call. I then went to the media site and input my number( takes a while to get through) then i got the text with the 4 digit number. Input the number to the media net site.

      Next go to the attwireless site and see if your phone has switched. It took like 30 mins for mine to switch from the iphone. Then go to features and where messaging is, see if a messaging option is there. NOT iphone text messaging. Change it, save and then put your sim back in your iphone. then WALLA, mms!!!

      Still doesn't work when I'm connected to a wifi router. If I turn wifi off, I can send and receive them fine. Anyone know why?

      BTW, if anyone wants to enable MMS now:

      1. Download this.
      2. Close iTunes

      Mac:

      3. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal).
      4. Run the command: defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE.

      Windows (32 Bit):

      3. Go to Start then Run and type CMD.
      4. Run this command (without quotes): "cd CProgram Files\iTunes\" and then "iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1".

      Windows (64 Bit):

      3. Go to Start then Run and type CMD.
      4. Run this command (without quotes): "cd CProgram Files (x86)\iTunes\" and then "iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1".

      5. Open iTunes, plug in your phone, and click on your phone in iTunes.
      6. Hold Shift (Windows) or Alt (Mac) and click "Check for updates".
      7. Select the IPCC you downloaded earlier.

      Yes, but only the 3GS can do it. 3G (and 2G if you figure out how to activate MMS) only get pics, audio, contacts, and location.

      this might sound stupid, but how would you send audio, or location, or contacts through mms?

      To send your contacts thru mms go into contacts and hit share. Once mms is enabled you can send them through MMS as a vcard.
