  • Receive MMS on the iPhone


    SwirlySpace, the guys who brought us the MMS app back in December, have updated to version 0.3, which now lets you receive MMS!

    This is "very rough" according to them, but a new version will be released soon after which will be much more polished. The good news is - it works. MMS receiving on the iPhone! It should appear on Installer within 24 hours.

    http://blog.swirlyspace.com/

    You can add this from Swirly's source until Ste gets it up - swirlyspace.com/SwirlySpace.xml and add version 0.3.2.

    A list of carrier settings can be found here.

    T-Mobile USA's settings are (thanks, insomniaparatus):

    T-Mobile (USA)
    MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080

      Damn this AT&T. Went to a local att store got them to add the .25 mms plan. Great should be golden...Service Denied. Drove to a different local att store and asked the lady to verify that I indeed had the .25 mms plan. Yes should be working she tells me. Ok I try to send one in the store...Service Denied. No matter what settings I use I keep getting Service Denied. How long did you guys have to wait after having it added to your plans for Swirly to work? I have been waiting 3 hours now since adding the ppu mms plan and still no go. Maybe I just gotta wait up to 24 hours. Damn Apple too for not just including this basic service to begin with. Done my ranting...

      The lady at AT&T said that I have to get another plan for my RAZR to add that feature. Now that's some serious bull ****. Can I call again, or do I have to wait because they saw that I just called?

      1) firmware version: OUT THE BOX 1.1.3
      2) jailbroken/unlocked/activated: ZiPhone GUI
      3) carrier info: t-Moble, usa Missouri
      4) no wifi, t-moble edge 1.1.3 fix

      T-Mobile (USA)

      Everything works well. Sending and Receiving. I have Mobile Finder installed and went and installed Mobile Preview. and tested it out. the only thing i have a problem with is, when i set the pics to max.... there still kinda small. If you get a message sent with text. You wont be able to read the text with it(or at least i cant figure out how to do it)

      thats it, thank.

      Quit out of installer, then fire it back up. Goto Sources and hit Refresh. Hope this helps.

      Don't know if this has been posted already, but you can view your pictures using the Photos application by just moving the received pics to DCIM/100APPLE folder with Mobilefinder and renaming it IMG_(next number).JPG. There's no thumbnail but it still works

      Damn these AT&T operators. Can an AT&T person on here set it up? This really sucks. I guess I'll try again. And to think I gave advice to someone and it worked...

      I changed the Iphone data to just unlimited data, plus message plan. The iphone data plan does not receive mms. Tell them you have two phones you alternate and the mms is not working on your other phone. It will cost like $5-10 more than the iphone plan. But it works.

      Here's what i did and it worked perfectly with corporate ATT not local store. I called and finally spoke to a real person. I then stated that I wanted to add a plan. She said ok which one. I said the unlimited family txt msg plan. She said ok let me see... you know that this charge is on top of your iphone 20/mo charge and I said yes. She said ok just wanted to make sure, you are set up and it goes into effect immediately. I said thanks, that was it, no hassles or anything.

      As far as the .5 cents per mms thing that you have I totally believe that you have it. I never doubted you. I just don't think that this is available to the masses, the reason you and your friends probably all have this is because you all got your iphones int he same area. Wish i lived there... anyways.. for the majority of the people this will not work.

      As for viewing the text that is written with other peoples phones sending you mms you need mobiletexeditor just like you need mobilepreview for pictures etc.

      I do have a question though... when I send mms to my wife on her iphone she recieves the picture. When I try to send it to a friend who is also on cingular the friend keeps getting this mesasge: file to large. I'm wondering whether the problem is on my end or hers because no matter what size I set swirlymms to (even on minimum) her phone says it's too large. Makes no sense to me...

      I'm not really sure what you are talking about... I never said there was only a 200 txt plan? in fact i linked to the page that has all the plans. And i even talked about getting the unlimited txt for 20 or family unlimited for 30 that includes mms? not really sure what you are even trying to say lol. I was specifically talking to the guy that has the very strange ".5 extra take away an sms" plan

      Ok i tried it out and it works! i also got it to show up as a thumbnail in there. After you've moved the pic to the folder and renamed it "IMG_(next number).JPG". M"ake a copy of it and rename the copy IMG_(next number).THM" and it should show up full size now.

      thanks
