  • 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

      back to the topic of swirlymms...

      does this allow you to receive video and sound files or just pictures, since we can only send pictures I'm wondering if others are able to send WHATEVER they want. I'm thinking of upgrading my plan to the family unlimited messages (30 a mo. and me and my wife get unlimited) but if I am still crippled in the mms category it seems not worth it.

      once you add the source, make sure to refresh your sources and you may need to exit out of installer and go back in. Also MAKE SURE you typed in the source correctly.

      Once all of this is done you should be able to just go to recent packages and it will be near the top.

      Did you refresh the sources? Did you uninstall the old one?

      So its just gonna be a thumbnail we see? I think it would be better to save them to the camera roll and save them as a PNG don't you think? So we can actually do something with them

      How would you go about saving this as a png file and moving it to the camera roll directory so we can view them full size?

      iPhones are not "supposed" to be able to do picture messaging so the customer care reps are not all that receptive to adding the service...
      Allright, i have gone through this whole process b 4 with the older version of MMS and i have seen alot of people still asking the same question about AT&T service with this one so ill help yall out real quick. MMS will not work on a regular AT&T Iphone data plan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just will not happen, AT&T knew that the iphone wasn't ment for regular pic messages and set up a diiferent prog to run them so its as simple as that really. As for trying to get custy service to add a pack onto the phone plan, I have yet to get that to work either, I even told them that I used a moto razor at work cause I work construction and didn't want to f up my Iphone wich would explain why i needed the pic message feture. As i recall the responce was that if i tryed to add a mms plan I would lose the data plan that i had, the way they sayd it seems like you can only have one service or the other, they cannot be put on the same plan. I even asked for the pay per pic 25 cent plan and they said it wouldn't work... Thats all i have to say to all you AT&T custy's. Best bet is to just wait it out till apple realizes how lamn their system of pic messaging is and updates it in firmware.
      If this was n e help hit the thanx button...

      well i can't do it cause we don't know if its open source or not. Bug you can do it in the same way the wallpaper app does it. Maybe in the settings allow you to choose where to save it. Click save when it comes in and it would create a thumbnail and then a full size image. Or if you didn't want to put them in wallpaper/camera roll the ability to make a new folder and save them there. Just a couple of suggestions

      What I'd like to know is why (and I know this from looking at their Installer install script) they are overwriting the /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app file without backing it up first?

      This file is never reverted back upon uninstall either... what gives?
