  • 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?

      I agree with Poseidon, I have read several different articles and all of them had a few things in common such as the iPhone users are very heavy data users. And this is why AT&T is having to make sure all towers capable and everything is in place to handle the load that this will bring. Just look at how users brought down Apple servers with the OS updates.

      Im with Posideon79 on this one. WSJ did a article on the matter. The iPhone makes up 8% of AT&Ts customers, which use an insane 71% of available data and bandwidth. And AT&T quoted yesterday they have 9 million iPhone subscribers on their network, 20% of them living in San Fran and New York. Also have more iPhone customers than all of the foreign markets combined. AT&T is paving the way, all else will be followers, AT&T is very secretive about every move they make.

      The Pre doesn't run on a 4G network.

      My 3G has been working for a couple months although I did put my sim in my moms non-iPhone first. I'm on 3.1 beta 3 Carrier 4.5. The wife's 3GS doesn't send or receive. She's on 3.0 still and doesn't have the camera icon. The three of us are on unlimited family messaging plan.

      So im guessing the sending part of this is only available for the 3.1 beta users. Can anyone confirm this? I am thinking until you update to that the option for sending is not even available on the message app.
