  • 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.

      This is a pain..now the file (I have saved on my desktop) isn't available to choose when I press Shift+Check For Update.

      Ugh.

      This one doesn't work either for me. I have tried all of these and none work. 3GS, 3.0 jailbroken. Checked my ATT account and it has the messaging option as current like it should instead of the iphone text messaging plan. WTF. I give up, waiting till the 25th. Only thing i wonder is, after changing out the ipcc to the hacked one I wonder what will happen when the authentic one comes from att?

      so you still have visual voicemail right? And did you already have a previous carrier profile? cuz i have one already with mms working. I just didn't know if this carrier file updated anything new. But if not then i'll stick with what i have cuz mine is working..no need to fix what's not broken.

      3.0 is what enabled the MMS functionality, it's just your phone awaits AT&T to flip the switch on MMS so you can send/receive. AT&T just enabled it on your account; you don't have to do anything beyond install 3.0 or later. It's all up to them [AT&T] to when MMS is actually turned on for you.

      Do I reboot it and THEN check for update+shift?

      I'm not even sure when I go to Run>>cmd and enter "CProgram Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunes.exe” /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1" its even working.

      How do I know I'm doing that correctly?

      you ca go to this site straight from ur phone iPhone Zubehr Shop and download everything from there, just follow the directions its really easy, then go to settings>network>cellular data and put in the same settings
      and reboot, it worked for me so give a try

      Yes, i agree it is that your'e a grumpy 32 year old.

      Some might be doing it because they are wanting to learn different techniques for installing profiles in the future or prob just for the fun of it.
