  • Get MMS on your iPhone TODAY

    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.

      Here is the official signed carrier settings from AT&T with the cellular data settings screen and tethering enabled. Tethering works great on 3.0 and 3.01 but I need someone to verify if it works with 3.1 or not. Good Luck!

      Ah! This is another one of those - 'I thought this was another thread' - isn't it?

      Could be, I just finished it and was trying to post it on the three or four main MMS threads so everyone saw it.

      The tethering settings do not show up on 3.1 with this file SB, the CDN settings do and it works

      Finally got ahold of a competent AT&T rep. She said they've had to remove and re-add messaging plans for many people... Hopefully this will work, and she will not remove my employee discount

      Edit: Didn't work. Awesome.

      i'm having problems with itunes 9 on my vista notebook and 3.0 os on my phone. when i try either shift-update or shift-restore it only gives me the option of updating to apple's 3.1. doesn't seem to want to let me choose a file at all. when i turn networking off it just says i have to connect to the internet for it to work.

      i haven't been able to find any solutions.. is there something in the itunes preferences i overlooked to allow me to choose files from my computer instead of having to go through apple?

      thanks but not working for me. when i shift-click on anything (in itunes 9) i'm not given an option to look for the .ipcc file i downloaded. it tries to force me to update to 3.1 instead of letting me look for a file on my computer (as i've done in the past jailbreaking)
