  • 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.


    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)
    MMS-APN: wap.voicestream.com
    User: empty
    Pass: empty

      how can you send that picture out on mobilefinder. I highlighted the picture on mobile finder and pressed send and then email and then it just disappears. Anyone know how to forward them out as a mms or is it not possible yet? I Got everything to work the first time because of this topic but just was wondering if it was possible forwarding them out after!

      to view your received pictures is best if you have mobile finder and mobile preview installed on your phone. the mobile preview app is an add-on for the mobile finder and you can view full size images within the finder app

      This file is never reverted back upon uninstall either... what gives?
      the only thing that mms installs in your springboard.app is two little .png files that are used when you open the swirlymms app an icon pops up in the status bar. green means you are connected to the service and grey means no service

      Ok, sorry if I missed it, but I looked a couple of times, and can't find it. When we go into the app to send a new mms, it has title, to, and file, are we suposed to type something in there? In file I mean? So, it knows where to look for the pictures? Just wondering, cuz when I press the + button, it shows these 2 pictures that I have on my camera roll, but, they are just a piece of both of them? Like not even half of those 2 pictures are showing, like they are cut up or something, really weird? So just wondering if I should type something in the field for file?? Thanks

      I'm on Rogers here in Canada and getting some odd behaviour:

      I have two iphones, installed swirly on both, identical settings:
      MMS Settings:
      MMSC: mms.gprs.rogers.com
      APN: media.com
      Username: media
      Password: mda01

      One of the phones wont send at all. I get:
      Failed to send MMS
      MMS cannot be sent right now since GPRS/EDGE is not available!...etc.

      The other phone, after a few minutes gets the green M, and will sit and swirl on sending, but comes back with:
      Failed to send to MMS
      Could not connect to proxy (connect failed)

      So my two questions are:
      1) Why the difference between the two? Is there some way to "kick" it to start working?
      2) Is there a proxy setting for Rogers that someone can give me please?

      EDIT: I used the proxy
      and that seemed to get it to send fairly quickly on the working one. I can't for the life of me figure out why it's not working on the other one. They're both pretty much identical iphones that I unlocked myself. (Note: Neither have normal edge data)

      EDIT 2: I just received a notification that I have an mms waiting on the other (non working) phone which I sent it to, but it won't fetch, giving me the same error (GPRS/Edge not available check your settings) but I did! They're identical!!

      EDIT 3: I am an idiot.
      It wasn't working on the other phone cause I had turned off Edge in Bossprefs. I hope this isn't eating data (as opposed to just a regular mms message). Now I can fetch/send in the other phone.
