  • AT&T Confirms MMS Pricing, iPhone 3G S Shipping


    AT&T has confirmed that iPhone MMS is included with the iPhone bundle for absolutely no extra cost. When AT&T works out their whole mess with enabling MMS for iPhone accounts later this summer it will just work for folks running 3.0 firmware (due tomorrow). For once AT&T is providing more features without more money!

    The confirmation comes via an AT&T .pdf which covers many facts of iPhone 3G S launch week. You can find where they say that MMS will be no extra charge on page two
    Later this summer, as part of the 3.0 software, AT&T will make multimedia messaging (MMS) available at no extra cost to customers with a text messaging bundle
    The iPhone 3G S is just three days away, and those that pre-ordered have started receiving notifications that their iPhone has been shipped. If you pre-ordered start watching for an email telling you that your iPhone 3G S has been shipped complete with tracking number.

    Apple has promised that Pre-orders will make it to customers on June 19th, a relief to many that remember the order fiascos of years past where ordered iPhones often didn't show up for weeks, or even a month after ordering.

      O2 in the Uk take 4 text credits for 1 MMS
      I'm on T-Mob and texts are 10p and MMS 25p out of my allowance.
      If AT&T are just taking 1MMS = 1 SMS then you are lucky, I don't think any European provider charges the same

The way it read is that an MMS has to be broken up into small fragments to send correctly through the SMS channel. Basically taking up the same space that 4 SMS would take...Does anyone have any more information about this?
      that would be LAME.
      Nope, what happens is is that the picture/video/contact/whateverthehell gets uploaded onto AT&T's network via your WAP internet. After being uploaded, it sends a link to the phone you sent the message to.. it is a service message that only the phone receives. It goes on WAP, downloads the p/v/c/wth and then shows that you have a message, and you can view whatever was sent in it.

      And that my friend, is why AT&T is not going to do that.

      None of this matters to me anyway because I have unlimited messaging anyway. =/

      if you have PPU on AT&T then it is 20cents an SMS, 25cents a MMS.
      But if you have the $5 for 200 messages plan, that is 200 text, picture, video, or instant messages. and that is the same for the $15 for 1500 and $20 for unlimited.
