  • 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.

      I want to install the carrier update but it's not coming up as an option in itunes. I'm on a 3GS with 3.0 installed. I'm guessing Itunes won't update the carrier unless your on 3.1, can anyone else confirm this? I'd like to find the carrier update someplace to install it manually.

      No carrier update for me. On 5.0 and MMS was working for me until today. Just tried, got a failed message with the red exclamation point.

      I just found someone had posted the 5.5 file in one of the threads, i put it on my 3gs JB 3.0. Not working for me yet since I just lost 3g data. Everytime i switch the ipcc this happens. Once I'm outside for about 1/2 hour with it, it should come back and hopefully i will have mms working.

      you have to be on 3.1 to be able to update the carrier. if you are on 3.0 it won't show up..

      That's lame, I was excited to try it out! I'm not going to update obviously until 3.1 3GS is jailbreak ready.

      I posted the file here:

      AT&T is on Pins and Needles over MMS Launch

      You can use SHIFT + update or SHIFT + restore to update carrier. When you download file, rename extension from .zip to .ipcc.

      EDIT: I am on JB 3.0.1 3GS.

      Sweet! Got it working again.

      iTunes 9, iPhone 3G with OS 3.0.1 on AT&T 5.5 ipcc.

      Downloaded the AT&T 5.5 ipcc file from another site and put it on my desktop (Win Vista 64bit).

      Opened command and typed the following (itunes.exe file path depends on your system set up)

      K: \iTunes\iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

      Then hit the Enter button.

      Open iTunes with your device hooked up via usb. Press and hold the Shift key, left mouse click Update. Next to the file name text box hit the drop down menu and select iPhone Carrier Configuration files (*.ipcc) and then locate the AT&T ipcc file on your desktop and double click. When complete restart your device.

      My MMS is working again.
