  • 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)

      Update: I just called local AT&T store (since customer care is closed on sunday) and asked them to add the .25 per message plan and they did! Now i don't get the service denied message anymore. Tested incoming and outgoing and both work great.

      Note: Install MobileFinder AND MobilePreview and this will allow you to view the picture a little bit bigger, but not full sized. Hope this helps.

      Sending works great so far. Sent to AT&T and Sprint customer. I'm on 1.1.4 jailbroken. Still waiting to receive. So we still need to keep WIFI off for this to work? Why is that?

      UPDATE: Just received 2 MMS! 1 from Sprint and 1 from AT&T customer. Wouldnt fetch them at first but then it did! Very sweet indeed! Now how do I view them?!

      Ok, I found the settings for my carrier in Mexico (Telcel) in some forum, but I need someone to help me figure out how to set them in the settings of swirly, here's what I got:

      MMS settings
      Create GPRS connection
      Description : Telcel MMS
      Connects to : MMS connection
      Access point: mms.itelcel.com
      User name: mmsgprs
      Paswword: mmsgprs2003

      Settings - Accessories - MMS setup
      First field: Telcel MMS
      IP: 148.233.151.240
      Port: 9201
      Mmsc Address: http://mms.itelcel.com/servlets/mms

      Thank you in advance, by the way

      Open Finder and tap on settings. I believe it's system file access you need to turn on. That should let you bo back to root. Then tap on var then mobile then media and lastly MMS app. Your pictures will be in there. Make sure you have Mobile Preview installed also. When you tap on the picture, Preview will open and there's your picture.

      It won't say "mobile" up at the top. You go go into Finder, hit the Up button until you see Library and Media folders. The Media folder is located in the var/mobile directory and this is where the MMSFiles folder is copied to.

      Holy cow! This actually works. I am on a 1.1.4 jailborken AT&T plan with family unlimited messaging. I have sent and received several pics already. I thought I remember something about WIFI having to be turned OFF but it works regardless. I donated a few dollars to the author via Paypal. Job well done!

      okay i did that, and i know i've recieved picture messages. but when i go to MMSFiles folder under mobile, there's just like txt files and double tapping them does nothing. i have mobilepreview installed too. he wasn't kidding when he said this is a rouge release. ill wait til a newer one comes out.

      Hi I cannot send although I can receive.
      1.1.4 iphone Vodafone Spain

      Also it seems to conflict with PUSH mail (yahoo) which stopped working after I installed the program and started working again after I uninstalled. Which for me it's a deal breaker I need my push email. Anyone else with this happening to them?

      This is my log:

      Alright, my friend and I are about to go to the mall and hopefully switch our data plans. But I still have one more question:

      What am I going to expect? Say I receive an MMS, will I still get a regular viewmymessage text, so that I know that I have to load up SwirlyMMS to download it, followed by Preview to see it? Or will Swirly pop up saying I have a new MMS and no more viewmymessage regular SMS?
