  • 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.

      now your friends phone just try and older carrier update, if not look for a repo that has the mms setting on it, I know sinfull iPhone has it. Just install that. That should work pretty good.

      I dont know why, but this worked for me! I'm so excited. Maybe it was the new carrier profile, or adding the max image size as instructed? I'm just glad it works.

      Also, too lazy to read the rest of this thread, but for those interested to know, the IPCC file downloaded from the guide's site is AT&T 5.1.

      LOL. just noticed that this was mentioned like two posts above mine. Sorry

      Agreed. It's always much better to keep her happy. lol

      I'll look into the repo for it from my friends phone. See what I can come up with to make it work. After fighting with it for 2 hours last night, I finally told him "Here, you do it." lol

      Thats because you are on a 2G. Its not designed or supposed to work on the original iPhones. Time to upgrade!

      I actually could not send an MMS. Double checked my l/p & cell network settings.

      Anyone else experiencing this?

      So, after adding the Sinful iPhone Repo onto my friend's phone, he now has the options needed, but still getting the hang ups on messages. I'm beginning to believe that his messaging package is just not set up for it.

      I have the 3GS 32gb fw3.0.1 jb w/redsnow.

      Running Windows XP SP3

      I did: run - cmd: copied and paste the whole: "C: \Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1 (with the ")

      opened iTunes (8.2)

      Shift / Check for updates - choose the new carrier file.

      Updated, restarted iphone and works perfectly. I have everything including visual vm working.

      Thanks for the directions! This worked great!

      I'm beginning to agree with some of those people who mention something about the MMS Opt Out.
