  • 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.

      What phone do you have? As your FW says 1.1.4 I assume it's a 2G? I don't think MMS will work on the 2G will it?

      3.1 came out on 9/9/09 and has nothing to do with thw AT&T MMS update coming out on 25/09/09

      You can get ActivateMMS2G from Cydia that activates the MMS feature on the 2G but it has messed up a couple phones...
      It doesn't mean it'll activate it on AT&T's end though.

      I'm on AT&T, last night MMS wasn't working, this morning it worked. Apparently they turned it on around here early.

      ^I'm in the Lehigh Valley too and still MMS is not working for me... I have been trying for near two months now and no luck but I have made it work for 3 of my friends and my sister. Just my luck.

      Juantwothree are you still on 3.0? Did you do any of the carrier updates?

      I haven't been able to sync my iPhone w/ itunes v.9, and I can only accredit it to this MMS hack/patch...my phone is recognized in itunes, but when I make any changes like adding music, photos, apps etc. it does a backup and then say's it's 'syncing', but nothing actually syncs! I tested my 1st gen phone w/ 3.0 firmware and it still syncs just fine, so I have come to the conclusion that this MMS crap is the culprit. Anybody else having this same problem or know of a way to reverse/delete this patch??? cheers

      Could always try downgrading to an earlier .ipcc file.

      Mine just started working this evening, been trying every day for awhile including earlier this afternoon. Was thinking earlier they may be activating accounts alphabetically or something. Last name starts with S

      On a related question, I see in the OP's post that it says picture or video to send, mine only says picture. Is the video feature going to be only for 3GS or will us 3G'ers with cycorder be able to get video sending capabilities?
