  • 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

      idk if it's just me....but I find it so much easier and cheaper just to take a screen shot of it from view my message dot com....and if you wanna size it to the screen then open it up in ya camera roll...zoom it to size...snap the pic....and delete the ugly one...cheaper and to me, easier to just....pic,zoom,pic,save.

      Screw all that mobile finder thumbnail little picture bull.

      I'm gonna try to get MMS turned on today and i'll report back. I have a question though. When i receive an MMS, does it go to my texts, or only to SwirlyMMS? And it only goes to SwirlyMMS, does it give a notification or anything?

      edit: I called, they were closed and you can't change **** on the AT&T website for the iPhone.. i'll try tomorrow.

      Does anyone know what service this use's? Here is Australia MMS's are sent over GPRS when using any other type of phone where as I think the iPhone would use EDGE...

      We have EDGE over here but it costs more and usually isn't included in most plans/caps/prepaid.

      Basically if this program only use's EDGE to send and receive the MMS's then it won't work for me unless I change my contract

      I can send pictures fine with my regular AT&T plan, should I be able to receive also if I can send or do I need to upgrade? Thanks

      yes if you have the AT&T unlimited it includes mms both sending and recieving

      also to let the Att users know they have stopped having the unlimited testing an so those of you that are trying to get it your out of luck

      For those who can't add the source, you have to enter it using capitals exactly like it appears on the first page of this thread:


      Worked for me anyway.

      HEY EVERYONE IF U HAVE AT&T ALL U HAVE TO DO IS HAVE INSTALLED MOBILE FINDER & MOBILE PREVIEW ALSO HAVE YOUR WIFI OFF N THEN PUT htpp://mmsc.cingular.com (Exacly the same) in the MMSC part then in the Proxy Part: Put
      APN:leave blank
      username:[email protected] (Exacly the same)
      PASSWORD: CINGULAR1 (Exacly the same

      Hopely that helps

      P.S: this only helps with reciving it also to send it takes a while

      On 1.1.4.

      Installed under recent packages swirlymms version 0.2.2

      All it does it load then goes back to the main dash.

      Also it turns off my wireless everytime.

      Just a heads up..

      I am on T-Mobile UK, but I don't think that matters as I can not even get as far as putting in settings..
