    Default Swirly MMS on APP Store Yet????
    I know it's a shot in the dark, but has anyone heard from the guy's that do the swirly mms program yet?

    Will they be allowed into the app store?

    I think I already know the answer, but just looking for confirmation so I can weep openly when Meatbag Jobs says no to an awesome program.

    Im assuming no because not only does it seems more like an official app so Apple would make it; you would have to get the OK from every carrier so they would allow MMS...

    was a pain in the butt anyway on ATT since it only worked for less that 24 hours. you have to call and have pix messaging turned on by a tech at ATT and because it is not supposed to be "ON" for the iphone their automated system would turn it off when it did its daily scan.

    my friends that are unlocked love it and it works great with the other carriers. i couldnt believe the options and how well it worked when i was playing around on it with an unlocked iphone.

    it worked fine on ATT as well but i got tired of calling to have it turned back on all the time.

    i think that this and copy and paste are two of the biggest flaws for a PDA phone.

    AT&T refused to allow picture messaging due to the bandwidth costs they incur from them. I believe Swirly actually made a statement saying their app was denied by Apple for AppStore distribution, but someone correct me if this isn't true.

    so ATT is saying that they can handle MMS on over 100 varieties of phones they offer but NOT the iphone?

    where is the logic in that?

    Besides the bandwidth excuse, Apple said they will not allow anything that will provide any type of enhancement to official Apple apps. Absolutely stupid. It is the reason why apps like Kate, weLyrics, and Customize will never make it into the AppStore, thankfully the DevTeam is supposed to have Pwnage 2.0 out next week from what I understand.

    Probably because the pictures on the iphone are better quality. Plus a simple google search will let you see how to mms for free on the iphone. I wont post the link since its THAT easy.
