The reason is this, the best interest for both Apple and AT&T, is to release "features" bit by bit. Because the iPhone is functional and scalable, and provides so many different type of users with so many options, by not including MMS in the plan, they not only create a "I want" mentality and it produces A LOT of buzz for them, this is just good PR and Marketing, this tactic maximizes profits without blowing it all in one fiscal quarter. In return, when they do release the MMS option, they will have a whole "huge" demographic that will come buy the phone.

They do not want to make profit only once by selling you a ferrari right away, they want to make a bit of profit each time you upgrade an engine size or furry dice add-on
Great business sense, and we all lap it up! God bless the unofficial app scene for giving those in the know these apps before apple decide it's time to profit some more!

I use swirly mms on my 1.1.4 1st gen iPhone and its great. I'm not upgrading to 2.0 till all the options tweaks and programs I have on my phone now is available for 2.0
P.s. Does anyone know a way to backup mms ie texts to tour computer and restore them after a upgrade or restore?

Lack of MMS has nothing to do with them creating an I WANT mentality. Maybe lack of 5mp camera, video, ect does but Apple wants nothing to do with MMS.

How about an application that will take the MMS messages sent to you and auto load the picture if you email it to somewhere?? So you don't have to manually input the username and password?

I just wanna double check, NO ATT users for Swirly to work? I thought it may have just been me.

I learned about this when I first realized that MMS would never be on the iPhone:
One of the most perplexing feature omissions from the iPhone was the lack of support for the MMS protocol. One can only assume that this was a deliberate choice by Apple, though it is hard to determine why.
Many users who are accustomed to snapping photos w/ their camera phones and sending those photos to friends and family via text/MMS messaging have been surprised to find out they can't do the same with their iPhone.
Thankfully, due to iPhone's email capabilities - there is a workaround.
In this day and age, almost all mobile phones have not only a phone number, but an email address. In fact, most mobile phones have two emails - one for plain text messages, and one for MMS.
Using iPhone's email picture function, you can still get your photos over to your friends' phones by emailing it to their phone. This does not require that the destination phone has email support. By emailing your picture to their phone and not their email, they'll receive it like a normal MMS message, provided they have MMS support on their phone.
Here's how to do it:
1) open a photo on your iPhone
2) click on the send photo link (bottom left hand icon)
3) select to email the photo
4) using the table below, enter the phone number of the person you want to send to, followed by the email prefix for their provider
Service Provider MMS Email Prefix
So, for instance, if you wanted to send an email to a Verizon user who's number was 8175551212, you'd send to email@example.com.
Hopefully, the iPhone will be updated to include MMS support soon. For now, this works.
Originally Chad Shmukler from How can I send a multimedia message (MMS) from the Apple iPhone? | The iPhone FAQ
PS If you want to have a friend send you a picure, just have them send it to the email account that you have set up on your iPhone!
Hope that helps.

yeah this is how i been doing it
the problem is peeps are so used to sending to a phone number that they forget about ur email and send it the reg way. then u got to go to a web site to view the **** or text the person back. they may or may not feel like dealing with the extra steps. haa
not having mms sucks along with no copy and paste. haaa

Apple looks toward the future, not the past. They were the first company to drop floppy drives from their computers, and most other followed suit. same goes here. Email is the way to go, not MMS.

Now all I have to do is memorize which friend is on which network and their corresponding address.
