  • 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

      do Not Install The .22 Version From Installer On 1.1.4, It Will Semi Brick Your Phone. It's Hard To Ressurect It. The Newest Version Should Work Fine!

      Hey guys,
      Follow my instructions and thank me later...here you go:

      First you need the Application Swirly MMS- add this from
      Swirly's source - swirlyspace.com/SwirlySpace.xml and add version 0.3.2.
      Install the package named "SwirlyMMS from Swirlyspace", ver 0.3.1. Follow the installation instructions (which means you must restart your phone when installation has finsihed)

      Then go to Settings and fill out this info:
      you can find settings for other carriers on other blogs.

      T-Mobile (USA)
      MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
      Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
      MMS-APN: wap.voicestream.com

      A screen will display that you need to install Mobile finder/Mobile Viewer to be able to see pictures. Go ahead and go to installer, all packages, scroll all the way down to Mobile Finder, install it, then go back and install Mobile Viewer.
      Now you are done! Have someone send you an mms. It should show under Swirly MMS. Open it then click fetch. It will download then display this message:

      "all fetched mms-files are stored in/var/mobile/media/mmsfiles"

      Click the menu button. Now you are on your home screen. Scroll to see the icon “Preview” and click it. Click “Open” . you will then have 5 folders displayed:

      1. …
      2. Bin
      3. Lib
      4. Library
      5. Media

      Double click on the folder “…” then click on folder “mobile” then folder “media” then folder “MMSfiles” then BINGO! All your received pictures are there!!! Good Luck… Big Thanks to Adel Hallak.

I was able to one time view them in finder, now i can see the number of texts on the Swirly MMS icon, but when I go into finder, I can't view them anymore? I can see the ones from before though, and i dont know how to delete those either?? hehehe I think i must've changed a setting or permission somewhere maybe?? Well, if anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Muuuaaaahhh!!

      Ok, guys, just updated my Swirly MMS app, and now I can go into finder and view them again! Yaaaayyy!!!
      BUUUUUUUtttt heheheh how the heck do I delete them? Oh! Also, if I change the size, they still all look small?? What do I do to make the size stick, and make them big or small? Thanks, Prissie


      Ok, one more thing, heheh sorry, but, is there a way to forward the picture texts messages that we receive to someone else? Like I mean, to send them any of the pics that we get from someone? Or do these pics have to be in our photos area, and if so, is there a way to get them there so we can forward them to others?? Geesh!! I'm a pain in the ***** huh?? hehe sorry, Muuaahh!! Prissie
      you can delete pictures buy click on it, select File at the bottom, then delete...not sure how to change the size yet, i just got it to work on my phone today...good luck

      I got it to send and receive but I installed mobile finder but don't know where to go to install mobile viewer. I can view the MMS pics on mobile finder but I guess I need mobile viewer to see them better?

      Hey, thanks for all the info, now I can delete them! Thanks! Oh and as far as viewing them better, with Preview, don't think it will let you view them any better, well, at least not for me, they are still the same size as in finder

      Hey I have one more question, like when we go into Swirly MMS, it shows all the numbers where the picture texts were sent from , how do we delete those? It just shows in a list all the phone numbers from all the mms sent, even if I have deleted some of those pictures, the phone numbers are still there, does anyone know how to delete those, as to not have a whole page of phone numbers?? Hey well, thanks Adel Hallak, that was really great info! Hey, and if you figure out about the sizing, please let us know, I am also at the moment trying to figure it out too! Ugh!! hehee

      well actually it will work on ATT just not for very long. you have to call into customer service and then immediately ask to speak to a technician. they will ask you why and just tell them you understand that they want to help but you were told that when you called back to ask to speak to a tech. if you dont you will to explain to them why you are calling and when you get finished trying to explain it they will tell you it doesnt work or they need to get you to a tech. either way you will have to go to a tech. no matter what the tech says they can turn on MMS for your iphone but the problem is that ATT does nightly or possibly hourly searches for phones that have settings that dont match what they are suppose to have and it automatically puts it back.

      i have sent and received many pics on my ATT iphone but only by calling back everyday to have it turned back on because they can not make it stick as long as that phone check system they have is told to take it off the iphone. so as you can imagine i gave up.

      it was nice while it lasted though

      ATT could fix this in 2 minutes if they wanted to but apple would have to give them the ok first so dont count on it happening.

      I have a general question about MMS and iPhone. I am using an iPhone in Cyprus (Europe) purchased from US. My device is running 1.1.4 jailbroken and activated using iLiberty+ 1.3.0.113. I entered my carrier setting for MMS in SwirlyMMS v0.3.8, but i cannot send or receive any MMS. Is there any limitation on the device to work only in US regarding MMS? With my previous Nokia device i was able to send and receive MMS using the same settings.

      Thank me I know for a fact this works! You can copy and paste your images from your mms folder in mobile-finder to your dcim folder. You just need to rename your file once you have copied and pasted your image to dcim. Rename it in the number sequence that is listed in the folder such as IMG_0001.JPG for your image and IMG_0001.THM for the actual thumbnail. This will allow you to view your images in larger scale you can zoom in and email them and also use them as wallpaper!

      Be sure to thank me if this works I really enjoy dissecting programs and helping out... Im just surprised that I didn't think of it sooner.

      Hey Swellguy, thanks for the help, but, what is our dcim folder? And how do I copy and paste? Do I first need to install a certain program to copy and paste? Hey, if it's not too much trouble, can you explain step by step exactly how to do this, I would really love to be able to view mine larger too! Again, thanks a bunch, really appreciate dudes like you! Muuuaaahh! Prissie

      we all use mobile finder to locate and view our mms messages right? so go to retrieve your mms message and single click image then click copy, then on the upper right corner click up button. at the very top of your media folder you will have dcim. double click dcim then double click 100apple then paste two copies of ur image, Rename it in the number sequence that is listed in the folder such as IMG_0001.JPG for your image and IMG_0001.THM for the actual thumbnail. This will allow you to view your images in larger scale, sync them to your computer, you can zoom in and email them and also use them as wallpaper because they are in your photo library now.

      show me some love if this works!

      Ok, this is the deal, when I go into Finder, all the photo text that I have saved, are there, the actual pic, ok, so i highlight the pic, and when I do, i don't have the option of copy yet, I have to click file at the bottom, then copy, after I do that, I click up, then the only 2 folders there, are MMSfiles, and ROMS?? There is no dcim?

      Ok, just noticed, that I have to actually find the dcim folder by first clicking on photo, then the little icon on top right by the apple, then media, then that is where the dcim folder is at. Ok, after I click it double click it, then double click the 100 apple folder, then i can paste it.

      You mean rename it once in the computer right? That is where we can view them bigger is on the computer not the phone right?? Hey is there anyway to forward these text messages? Thanks a bunch for your help!
