  • MMS on the iPhone

    Wednesday ModMyI member Suavphisticated has released MMS, a native iPhone app which can send MMS directly from your iPhone. MMS receiving is NOT yet implemented, but is in the development process.

    Great job Suavphisticated - this has been MUCH needed by the iPhone community! It will be interesting to see how MMS receiving is implemented here.

    MMS is available via the Community Source maintained by Ste.

    NOTE: this is still an early beta release. It is slightly buggy, but is working. You will need to set it up with your carrier MMSC info. Please add your carriers MMSC info to the Carrier APN Wiki so we can get a nice complete listing. There's a good list here too (thanks, mjaydb) You will also need MMS enabled on your account.

    Digg it.

      Once again, it is my belief you can not add MMS to your account if you are using a "locked" iPhone with ATT. MMS is not included with the iPhone data plan. You can not add pay per use MMS to an iPhone plan. If you notice you can no longer change features online at att.com if you are using a locked iPhone on your account.

      On the other hand, if you have an unlocked iPhone and are using it on ATT network, more than likely you would be using some sort of unlimited medianet plan which would include the MMS and set up on your account on the network side with MMS.

      It would be intresting to see if anyone has got the MMS app to work on ATT network to let us know the following:
      A: If your iPhone is locked or not?
      B: What data plan you are using

      yup. My MMS is working perfectly. Im also on the new ATT wireless network. Im using the original firmware, jailbroken. The plan im using is the Media Net plan, the 19.99 one.

      To answer a few questions here:

      The AT&T settings are:

      MMSC: mmsc.cingular.com

      turn wifi OFF!!!

      I have a 1.1.1 vers. and jailbreaked and still locked. i have a data plan of $30 with 1500 text. I sent 2 MMS to my gf. ( she is on T-Mobil) and she got it very fast.

      The picture that worked for me was only the one that I took with my iPhone camera.

      You can't receive MMS on the iPhone for now. Its something that the creators of this app are working on!

      I hope this helps

      RaMod - thanks.

      Well, my pics are just a blob/run-in with each other. The only pic on my phone that I took with the phone doesn't show up. I'll wait this out.

      I used these settings too.
      MMSC: mmsc.cingular.com
      I had to call customer service and ask to have MMS turned on for my account and when the rep asked why, because I had an iPhone, I told her that I swap my SIM between my iPhone and another phone that has MMS. She said ok and activated it. Pay per use at $0.25 a pop.
      I sent a test message to a verizon phone and it worked perfect. Then I sent a test to a t-mobile phone and they only received a butterfly picture as stated earlier in this post.
      AT&T iphone 1.1.2 locked
      Hope this helps.

      technically anyone who has the unlimted msg plan with att shouldnt have to ask pay per msg text msging being that the messeging being that att site states the following:

      Messaging Unlimited
      UNLIMITED Text, Video, Picture, and Instant Messages. GET IT ALL at a discounted monthly rate. You have the freedom to message any way to any one.

      View Details
      You need a compatible plan and phone to get this service.
      See compatible: Phones and Plans

      Apple: iPhone

      guess u just need a good customer service person who can enable it if its possible and u shouldnt be charged a 25 cent per msg because the website states u should already have it

      You're welcome! I think the picture thing is something that the developers are working on right now. It might be something easy, not sure, I have to look into it. Maybe in the new update?

      Anyway, you can hit the "Thanks" button if I helped you!
