  • Receive Video via MMS - 3.0 Delivers


    When Apple announced the 3.0 iPhone firmware, they let us all know that MMS would FINALLY be allowed.

    Until now, we weren't sure whether videos would be fair game as well in MMS - but the guys over at BGR have given it a try on 3.0, and it looks like its working great.

    Good to know.

    BGR

    thanks, sean

      Yes, I am sending and recieving MMS fine. I have personally sent & recieved MMS, yes. When I was on 3.0b1, I was able to recieve, but not send successfully. Since upgrading to 3.0b2, I have now been able to send flawlessly! ...and yes, I'm on AT&T

      EDIT: Nvm, I see they recieved the video there, not sent one
      Ok but does that mean the 3.0 firmware will allow the iPhone to read different video formats or does it convert it automatically(which is less likely cuz just the time to transfer the video over the 3G network will take time and that is unconvenient) or does At&t has a special server to convert the videos for the iPhone?

      It's really not clear.

      Finally a good time to own an iPhone and not have a crippled technically advanced cell phone. LOL


      Is it me or is the PLAY symbol not centered on the video item.

      Funny, I am using 3.0b2 on AT&T and I can't send any type of MMS messages. Just asked a friend to send me a pic via MMS and will come back and update you guys.

      nrowensby, did you call AT&T and request MMS to be turned on or it just worked on your magic iPhone?

      No magic iPhone, no calls to AT&T... I used this method (http://www.modmyi.com/forums/t/51047...ml#post3455321) about a month ago when I was trying to get SwirlyMMS to work. It was working great with Swirly until I upgraded to 3.0b1, then I was only able to recieve MMS (with Messaging App, of course). Once I upgraded to 3.0b2, I was then able to send and recieve MMS and still am. I can also confirm that video works great, I had my bro-in-law send me a video from his Samsung phone earlier.

      I believe it was stated that mms could be sent in the normal text app (which I think is now called messages)

      And I can't see why mms wouldn't work on every gen iphone. I mean, what hardware update was in the 3g that the 2g doesn't have that could allow for mms? Nothing I know of.
