you can't add photos or sounds to the emails anyways so why would you bother going through that to send a multimedia message with no media attached

When you're viewing a photo in your Photos part of the iPhone, click the little arrow coming out of a box icon in the bottom left of the screen. It brings up a menu where you can email the photo, assign it to a contact, etc.
That's why you'd bother.

ooooo I hadnt stumbled on that

Yeah, I figured that out on iDay. Always a way around block walls.
07-01-2007, 06:55 PM #7Receiving text messages
I am NOT able to RECEIVE text messages from others' cell phones unless they create an e-mail address for me aside from my phone number. That means they can't just text to my phone number (like everyone else in the world can), they have to add "@txt.att.net" to the end of it.
This also means they can't REPLY to messages I send; they have to go into the e-mail address they've entered, and use that to respond.
Has anyone else figured this out? I went to the AT&T store and they said 3 other people came in today with the same problem. Their response: Call Customer Service tomorrow when they're open.
This could be a deal breaker for me. I need to be able to send (and RECEIVE) text messages!
07-01-2007, 07:15 PM #8
hmm call att, i can receive txts
07-01-2007, 07:19 PM #9
Well, good to know it works for some people. Maybe they just need to fix a bug for me. Will call tomorrow.
By the way, I don't use windows, but how to get rid of that under my avatar? Can't find the preference setting...

For some reason I can't receive any texts from my wife, but I can receive them fine from my T-Mobile phone on the same plan as hers. Strange... She can receive mine, but I don't get any of her replies.
Texts from other friends come in just fine, and texts from her phone to my other phone come in just fine. AT&T just doesn't want me texting my wife.

You won't get the pic. If they send it to that address, its an MMS anyway. You're best bet is to have your friends plug whichever email address you use from your iPhone into their phones, and have them send MMS to that email instead of your phone number. Its the same cost for them, but then shows up in your inbox.

i don't think just sending an email to someone's mobile phone email address (i.e. [email protected]) will work. MMS is an actual standard/protocol of email like SMS or HTML email is. if you look at the detailed header when sending MMS message to a regular email (like [email protected]) there's a field in there that indicates the message is in MMS format. the same goes for SMS/text messages too and I believe HTML enriched messages. when Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc. system sees this indicator it knows it a Picture Mail or Video Mail and makes sure the media attached are adhering to the MMS standard (file type/format, resolution, file size, etc.) before passing it to the receiver's phone (actually the sender's phone and/or carrier may check this while composing or while attempting to send).
so until your Mobile Mail on your iPhones are modded to include that MMS syntax/indicator in the message header and your pictures or videos are checked for MMS compliance before sending, MMS on the iPhone will not truly work.

Believe me, I fully tested this before posting it. It works fine!
07-01-2007, 10:14 PM #16
confirmed working fine
07-01-2007, 10:51 PM #17
Well it works almost fine. Just make sure the person you are sending to doesn't have an iPhone or else it wont work. They will just see the text in the email/"MMS" and no picture.
07-01-2007, 11:08 PM #18
Right, if you're sending to an iPhone, since it doesn't have an MMS incoming ability, just send it to whatever email address they're using for their iPhone. This thread is for outgoing.
07-02-2007, 12:15 AM #19
worked great! Tested it on my son's SLVR. I had a hard time viewing it though because I kept wanting to tab the screen instead of the select button.
07-02-2007, 02:24 AM #20
yes results will vary dramatically between users unfortunately.
it's best you post the details of ya testings (including the file size of the photo) so others can successfully replicate it (who are having trouble with it)
the text of the header and body of the email sent from your iPhone would actually be most helpful. compare that with the text from a real MMS header and body from a phone that has real MMS and then we can really see what's what
