  • 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.

      you should just delete this thread. it's been made already enough times...

      you keep posting old news for some reason

      your other thread about "Free calling" was news over a 1.5 months old

      this MMS enabling thing is news from months ago that has been posted to death already

      First of all guys, you're mocking him WITHOUT A SINGLE REASON! This is the latest method with a new file and some new technique to enable MMS on your 3G/ 3GS, updated to 3.1 and works even with iTunes 9.0! Please do some research before being rude to someone...

      This is what I did to get MMS working on my iPhone 3GS 32GB Using iTunes 8.2 on my AT&T Network:


      1. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities)
      Type the following command: defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

      2. Downloaded and Installed the file for Carrier 5.0 file (Reboot iPhone)

      3. Put my sim card into an alternate phone that takes a sim card

      4. Went to here (https://mymedianet.wireless.att.com/app/MC) and signed up for media net

      5. Sent A MMS or SMS from or to the Alternate phone (This step changes your phone in your At&t account and makes your online account think you have the alternate phone as your primary)

      5. Switch the sim card back into the iphone and Bingo!!! MMS

      Hope this helps someone that was having trouble

      I used the second phone trick for months now.

      With or with out jailbreak, I got it working when I had 3.1.

      Now if I can just get tethering back. I had it on my non jail broken 3G and 3.1 killed it. Anyone know how to get it back without a jailbreak.

      Just did as instructed, and everything's dandy, except can't send pictures.

      Going to try the two-phone method here in a minute.

      i agree that the idea is old, but the program and files are new.

      on the other hand, anyone that wanted mms that badly would have probably googled it and already found the link by stealthbravo and either had/or didnt get it to work. but for the few in the world that never thought to google it, thanks for bringing it to those peoples attention. they will surely thank you

      have a great day

      actually this is the latest... he has a newer carrier file listed it comes up 5.1 in my phone and pic mail is working after doing this method... yea some of the steps are like the older ones that everyone had listed on here.. but the file is diff and actually works... dont bash this guy cause u think this is just like the rest

      Yeah, ive been doing this for like 3 months now. If you do those steps and it doesnt work, do the media net trick, i heard they topped disabling the mms once its on the account.

      I don't think anyone was mocking him.

      While it was nice of him to post it again for those who haven't got it working by now, it still is old news. I used this to activate MMS back in August.
