  • iPhone OS 3.0 - MMS, Copy/Paste, Turn-by-Turn, and much more Summer '09



    So it looks like the new OS for the iPhone will be showcased on March 17. Note, this doesn't mean it will be RELEASED next week. As to what the OS will bring, who knows but if it doesn't have push notifications I will be a very, very angry individual.

      all i can say is finally! the phone will still be crippled even with the update. i don't even know why they would release a new iphone model this summer when the 3g has not even been tapped out performance wise!!!

      Has anyone got the MMS working on ATT and 3.0?

      Here are my efforts. Called and spoke to about 5 people at ATT. Eventually transferred to a tech support person who changed the MMS flag on my account to MMS=yes. Still no luck. I then took the SIM out off my Motorola that can send MMS, put it in my iphone and still no luck. Has anyone else tried another SIM from another phone ? So I am not sure if the settings in the carrier.plist are good or there will be a carrier update as we had a few weeks ago that added the microcell stuff to address this.

      Any thoughts ?

      Why does your sig say you need help unlocking when there are so many tutorials around?

      Quick question. Does the part which says developers will be given access to the USB port mean that they will be able to make a simple program that will finally be able to give us a usb mass storage device on our iPhones instead of always having to wifi access?

      Ummm...Since the iPhone comes with unlimited data, and MMS is based on data, how is it feasible to get charged extra? Instead of assuming I was making assumptions, try asking! I've been with Cingular/AT&T as an IT manager for awhile now, and pretty sure I know what I'm talking about!!!

      Now if you are in another country...I'm not sure about that. I'm talking about the US., but it still wouldn't make sense regardless.

      Probably the same way every European carrier charges for MMS separately from data....

      It won't be native, but the SDK/OS now allows for 3rd-party developers to provide it. So companies like TomTom have already announced they will bring turn by turn to the iPhone.

      I decided to test MMS on my phone the other day (ATT 5 ipcc installed) and it actually worked. Was able to send and receive MMS with no problem or delay.

      I think that Sept 25 is the day EVERYBODY will have it. I think in my market though, its working fine as of now.

      what settings are you using for your MMS?

      Does this mean 3.1 will be delayed until the 25th? Not released tomorrow?

      the same ones floating around everywhere.

      these are the instructions i typed for my girlfriend which worked as well.

      1. save ATT 5 ipcc (don't try to open it or anything)
      2. open itunes with iphone plugged in
      3. hold alt/option and click "check for update"
      4. browse to where you saved the attachment and click "choose"
      5. unplug iphone
      6. restart iphone

      after you do these things do the following:

      7. go to settings > general > network > cellular data network
      8. scroll down to MMS and enter the following exactly as typed

      APN - wap.cingular
      Username - [email protected]
      Password - CINGULAR1
      MMSC - http://mmsc.cingular.com
      MMS Proxy - 66.209.11.32
      MMS Max Message SIze - LEAVE BLANK
      MM UA Prof URL - LEAVE BLANK

      9. once these settings are entered in, press the home button then restart your phone again

      when you restart, go into messages and you should see a camera icon next to where you type in a message (above the keyboard)

      voila!

      the MMS's take a minute or so to send if they are successful, but like I said, I had these same settings on my phone for months and it never worked then out of nowhere today I tried it and its worked every time.
