  • 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

      Hi everyone just a quick question/suggestion.

      From what I understand if I were to switch to the $20 a month UNLIMITED data plan with ATT and then add the $20 unlimited MMS and SMS plan I would be able to use the data and text like I am now, and not pay a dollar more. From what I understand, the only difference between the regular unlimited data plan and the iphone data plan is that without the iphone data plan you will not be able to use visual voicemail.

      What I am wondering is, can't I just call up ATT and say that I sold my iphone and now I have a razr and I want to use these two plans? Then they should not be able to say no to changing the plans, and I should still have everything I have now except visual voicemail, and I wouldn't be paying a cent more.


      Can someone confirm this asap? If this is true then I will be giving ATT a call as soon as I get out of work. Thanks!

      depending on your firmware, you could try dling iToggle and switching the edge off and on to see if it will reset it

I have no idea if this is even possible but just a thought....
      you can follow the guide that this guy posted

      FYI, you can also rename the files to MMS_0001.JPG instead of the normal IMG
      it works just the same
      but also a heads up
      do NOT create a thumbnail
      it will look fine in the camera roll when you make it
      but once you go into swirly to create a new message and choose an image
      that picture will cover pretty much the whole screen
      because you are making a whole sized picture a thumbnail
      so do not make the thumbnail
      downside to this is you have no preview pic for the picture
      so yeah...its your choice :P
      you can always, of course, transfer it to your computer
      resize the thumbnail to the normal 75 x 75
      and transfer that as a thumbnail
      that MIGHT work
      havnt tried it yet....

      ok i dont get why everyone is saying they will lose visual voicemail
      if you have any iphone plan
      even the $20 one
      you HAVE visual voicemail
      so heres what you do
      change your plan to the $20 iphone plan
      that has unlimited data
      200 text
      then add the unlimited text/mms package to your WHOLE plan
      that will give you the same thing as the $40 plan
      just chopped into 2 seperate things
      and you will also have mms
      and you still have visual voicemail...

      are you sure you are adding it correctly?

      if so, try closing installer, brining it back up, refresh sources
      and repeat a couple times

      I am on AT&T. I can send messages to all carriers and receive messages only from AT&T people. Tech support said they don't know why and can't submit a trouble ticket because the iphone isn't supposed to do picture messaging anyways, haha. It's an AT&T issue because he can see all the messages coming into the AT&T system, but they're just not getting delivered to the phone. Anyone out there experiencing similar stuff? Help...

      i still can't find the new version. i added the swirlyspace repository but it's saing that the source is "uncategorized" and is calling it "untitled source". i can find 0.2.2, but not 0.3.3, any ideas? (i've already added/removed the source multiple times and refreshed it)

      are you typing it EXACTLY right?

      http://swirlyspace.com/SwirlySpace.xml

      you HAVE to have the capital Swirly and Space
      and make sure it doesnt auto cap the XML at the end

      Yes the caps must have made the difference....I have installed swirley and have tried to send out a pic and let someone send me a pic however it goes to my other message with that password bologne. Do I need to uninstall the other text and just keep swirly? Can I disable it?

      I'm a new at&t customer, I purchased two iphones.........for my wife and I. I have upgraded to 1.1.4, jailbroke both phones and have had no problems sending and receiving mms pics using swirly.........And I never had to contact customer service to add mms functionality, all activation was with itunes only.....so my point is, do u have to have a shared account like I have or are the settings different for those that have a single account?? Cuz it seems as if those who are having problems may not be on a shared plan???? Just something to think about for those who are having problems with mms.

      It mostly appears to be a problem adding packages we need unless on a family plan. I have tried every way possibly mentioned here without any luck at all. I give up. I imagine some day we will have mms natively on the iPhone
