Thread: How to get MMS Working (Guide)

  1. #1
    Default How to get MMS Working (Guide)
    First we have to start this with a small note. Pay Attention now.


    THIS IS FOR ATT USERS. but this can work for others carriers if you know the MMS settings.
    THIS IS FOR THE 3G IPHONE not the 2G.

    The easy way of getting this to work on your 3G is to do this.

    Find and old ATT phone that you have and set it on the table in front of you. Got that? good...

    Take your SIM card out of your IPHONE and then put it in your old phone.

    Power on the old phone.

    Call ATT from a Land Line or a different phone.

    Tell them that you are switching to a different phone. and you want to enable MMS on it.

    they will ask you for the ESN of the phone.

    Also you will have to change you plan a little.
    Tell them to take off the IPHONE data plan and put on the SMS and MMS and Unlimited Data Package.

    Yes you read that right.

    Once they do that. you will have to reboot your phone.

    DO NOT GET OFF THE PHONE WITH THEM YET!

    Test your data connection on the phone.
    Test sending a MMS message to yourself.
    Test a phone call.

    if all that is working then great!

    the next step gets easier.

    Take the SIM out of the old phone and put it in the IPHONE 3G.

    power it up.

    then goto.

    help.BenM.at in your Iphones browser.


    Select the ATT setting. and then follow the instructions.






    If your lost at this step reffer to this page to get the settings.
    Unofficial Guide – Enable iPhone 3G 3.0 Free Tethering on ATT from Safari [Step by Step] | iLikeMyiPhone

    once you have finished that REBOOT the iphone. it may take a min.

    AFTER your phone is up and running test your browser. see if you get a webpage.

    after you do that then go into

    Settings > general > Network > Cellular Data Network.



    you should now see the MMS Settings.



    if you see them. good. close out of that and then goto your Messages and create a new message and then see if you have a little camera icon on the left side..









    and thats it...

    Pretty simple girls and boys.

    PS if you are still having problems with send/rec MMS. Try these settings in the MMS settings under
    Settings > General > Network > Cellular data Network.

    PSS You should be able to tether after this too..

    PSSS. If you cannot see the Cellular Data area. then try going to
    Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone on your iphone.
    then click custom APN
    Choose > US - AT&T
    then create custom profile
    and then install.

    Reboot and then check the carrier settings.



    ______________

    Ok here is in hopes of resolving the issue of not seeing the APN settings..

    if you are in itunes 8.2 under windows.
    CLOSE iTunes!
    Download the file i have attached called ATT_US.zip and then extract the .ipcc file.
    ATT_US.zip

    goto
    Start > Run > and then type CMD

    a black box will show up.

    in the black box type this exactly how it is.

    "%ProgramFiles%\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    or you can copy and then right click paste it into the black box.

    After you do that open itunes and then goto your iPhone and then press "Shift + Check for Update"

    Then navigate to where you extracted the ipcc file. you will see a drop down menu by the file name dialog. click that and change it to iPhone Carrier Confiuration.

    Then click open.

    It will only take a few seconds. once that is done do a hard reboot on your Phone.
    Then power it back up and then see if you see the "Cellular Data Network" settings.

    if you see the settings then go back to help.BenM.at and get the settings.

    just a side note
    According to miatawnt2b you can get the Visual voicemain to work if you use these settings under the Carrier Settings for Voice Mail. I have not tried this personally but let me know if it works.

    I installed the mobileconfigs thing, but I have no cellular data network option under network? I only have a option for internet tethering.

    3g

    Just tried your PSSS.

    Still can't see the Cellular Data network area of the menu.

    I realized, there's no option for me to send MMS, anywhere on the phone.

    When you went upto 3.0 did you do an update or restore?
    if (youTryToBeSmarter)
    {
    i.WillTryToBeNicer();
    }
    //oh here let me translate for you to something that is easier to understand!
    If youTryToBeSmarter Then
    i.WillTryToBeNicer()
    End If

    Alright. Cool!

    Wouldn't this cause you to lose visual voicemail?

  15. #14
    Followed above instructions and it didn't work. I have tethering, but nothing else. 3G, updated (not restore) to 3.0.

    Am I getting smart with you? How would you know?

  16. #15
    are you going to upload the file here or provide a link? let me know when and where i can get it. thanks for your help,

    The APN for visual voicemail is different which is why this breaks VM. Change your visual voicemail APN to:

    acds.voicemail

    Leave the username and password fields blank... there you go, VM fixed.
