  • iPhone MMS Apple Allowed. Could it be True?


    Uh well um. Better extremely late than never? The lack off MMS has been one of the biggest complaints about the iPhone since day one way back in 2007. Who is going to bring MMS to the masses? Swirly MMS 1.2 already has via Cydia but what about all those poor fools that haven't jailbroken yet? While Apple is leaving its users hanging in the wind Mobispine is working hard to create a MMS app that Apple will allow out the door.

    The other day the rumor initially broke on MacWorld that Swedish-Finnish carrier Telia is on the verge (read with in the next two months) of pushing their MMS app out the door and into the eager hands of people subscribed to their cellular network. That's all well and good that someone is getting MMS without jailbreaking but leaves most the world with out.

    An update hit Engadget today that gives those not on Telia some hope! It turns out the MMS app that was originally reported to be developed by Telia is actually being developed by a third party developer called Mobispine. Mobispine has plans for MMS on a much broader scope. According to their press release Mobispine CEO Dusyant Patel says that “Mobispine continues its strong track record of innovation and is proud to unveil the first true MMS service for iPhones. We are confident that global operators will find Mobispine’s MMS service for iPhone easy-to-use and profitable.”

    MMS users can only hope that Mobispine's dream of carrier backed MMS on iPhone's everywhere will come true and make it through Apple's approval process - it's pretty evident that Apple isn't going to create MMS on the iPhone themselves.

      I dont know why they refuse to put mms on the iPhone. Even if they put a "real" mms app on the app store for say $4.99, just in this app they would make $$$$$$ (in the same amount of digits). I would buy it and im sure the next person that wants an iPhone but wont buy it just because it doesnt have mms, would buy the pone and the app. And all the people that already have an iPhone im sure would too.

      MMS is just another way for carriers to charge you for sending a pic when all your actually doing is sending an email. All sms is is email!

      The iphone has always been able to send and receive mms! All you need is an email address setup on your iphone and the work around destinations to send it to for the specific carrier the recipient in on ie... [email protected] (verizon)

      google for the workaround!

      MMS isn't obsolete at all. I don't know where you're from but here in the UK MMS is still used a lot

      We should all give Apple a deadline either approve an MMS app, make one or we start switching to BlackBerries or Windows (true) Smartphones.

      SENDING thru e-mail is a breeze. I'm sure most people here have discovered that.

      It is the receiving that sucks- I would say MAYBE your friend's phone can e-mail a picture, but maybe not. Teaching your friend how to set their phone up to send an e-mail to your iphone is a PITA.

      So just convert all your friends to iPhones and you'll have no problems- email email email...

      Srsly- with all the hoops to jump thru on getting an AT&T "account unlock" and such- Swirly is just not a viable option. I wish it was, but it seems just too clunky.

      BELIEVE ME, no one wants MMS more than I do...

      This is what I find ironic. The iPhone is renown as the the most advanced phone yet people with a lesser phone have to be taught how to send iPhone users a message.
      It's not as if the phone isn't capable to handle MMS, it friggen blocked on purpose.
      Email is email not messaging. The last thing I want is to clog up and sift through my email for messages.
      Just think if macs had to use email instead of messaging.
      Sounds pretty stupid ha. Now imagine the most advanced phone has to use email instead of instant messaging.
      I think Steve Jobs should make us dial in phone number in binary, heck having that many numbers on the dial pad must take the smartest programmers in the world. Ahhhh and that is why we don't have MMS because Steve Jobs has secured the smartest programmers to maintain the functionality of the dial pad.

      Ok so I am a little bitter.

      You can't. Just get your friends with the times and tell them to e-mail you. I seriously can't wait for MMS to die and everyone switch to e-mail. It's better in every possible way.

      Agreed. Too bad we can't snap our fingers and make that happen. Remember, 90% of phones can send MMS and WAY less do e-mail. So until that ratio changes, we are stuck on the wrong side of the curve.

      For no apparent reason other than stupidity.

      why cant they just at least make it possible to click on the html link in the text that is received and have it jump to the webpage and automatically insert the user and pass? i hate going back and forth with text and safari when i'm no where near my home computer.

      I dont get what the big deal is with MMS, just get peoples e-mail address. And if they dont have an e-mail address to send/ recieve pics then they are in the stone age and shouldnt be allowed to even use a cellphone. My GF still has a blackjack and she just sends everything to my e-mail and vis versa. I would much rather see copy and paste, or zoom and color functions on the camera, or how about a video function? I'm jailbroken so I have Snapture and Cycorder, but everyone should be able to have these funtions.

      i don't understand why we are not able to receive MMS? what is the whole reason for it? i hate the stupid viewmymessage thing. it just makes me not want to view my pictures at all with that process, which half the time doesn't work
