  • Get MMS on your iPhone TODAY

    image source: Fire Wire

    Cult of Mac has a simple straightforward hack to enable MMS messaging on your iPhone 3G or 3GS if you just can't wait... or if, like me, you have fun playing around in your phone's guts a little.

    It takes about three minutes, and Leander Kahney warns that some users have said it doesn't work. Your mileage, as always, may vary.

      Well you can try the 5.0 on 3.01. That combination is working for me.

      i dont have the family plan, and ive tried just about everything/combination. im beginning to think ppl are right bout it only working on family plan phones. i dont have another att phone 2 do sb's method so i cant go that route. i have my husbands, but its his work phone.
      Yeah. We have a family plan with 5 iPhones

      This is the first time it has worked for me though. Ive tried EVERYTHING for the past 4-ish months to make it work and it never did

      But at least its only 9 more days to its actually out

      Ok, I updated my phone to the latest carrier file 2 weeks ago. MMS has not worked.

      Yesterday, its started working (Maryland)

      I dont have a family plan.

      I sent some MMS to others I know that have iphones....they did not receive the MMS but instead got some sort of message with a url link (requiring a id and password).

      So, the downside of all of the MMS hacking is that unless your iphone recipient hacks their phone , and their MMS is also turned on...

      They will not see your MMS.

      ...so that makes this effort pretty much a waste of time until 09/25.

      Tried this on my 2G and it killed my battery life. Don't do any of these tricks guys... the official MMS is coming soon... just wait.

      This is what I am finding a bit odd...

      My Phone:
      16gb 3Gs w/3.0 Jailbreak
      Family Talk Plan
      Individual Messaging Plan
      -After install and changes, everything works flawlessly.
      (Set Up and Install Time = 5 minutes)

      My Girlfriends Phone:
      8gb 3G w/3.0.1 Jailbreak
      Family Talk Plan
      Individual Messaging Plan
      -After install and changes, MMS does not work properly. MMS button shows up, all settings are correct, but will not send or receive MMS messages.
      (Set Up and Install Time = 1 hour)

      My Friends Phone:
      32gb 3Gs w/3.0.1 Jailbreak
      Individual Talk and Messaging Plan
      -During install on iTunes, "An unknown error has occurred. (0xE800003D.)" which prohibits the use of the AT&T US carrier file update.
      -Internet Teathering does appear to be functioning after using the BenM set up. However, no form of MMS functionality has appeared on this phone since attempting it last night.
      (Attempted Set Up and Install Time = 2 hours)

      ----------------------------------
      Anyone with any idea why this is happening? I personally attempted to update each phone myself, since I knew how to make it work. However, my phone is the only one to successfully work after updating the carrier files.

      Go to settings>reset>reset network only click that, ur phone should restart, then go and put in the username and password again, I had to do that for my wifes phone.
      If after that nothing happens, try rebooting ur phone and see If it works again.

      Are you referring to my GF's phone? Cause my friend's phone doesn't give me anything at all related to MMS. lol

      i did this with my 3GS last night but i did it on a windows computer all i had to do was update the carrier file with the one provided i found that this carrier setting was 5.1. i then just added the apn, username, and parrword and MMS has worked fine since did not have to swap SIM cards or call AT&T.I hope it works as easily for the rest of you even though it comes out for everyone in 8 days. It is always fun to beat the rest of your friends who have iphones.
