    I can just see it now:

    AT&T now offering Cut & Paste for the iPhone, only $7.99 /month
    Get AT&T's new Flash plan, $14.99/month
    Want to tether your iPhone? You need AT&T's tethering plan, $39.99/month

    The nerve of these people is astounding.

    Today, you get the golden ticket because you got a bullseye.

    This is great news! This app is the only reason I have stayed with 1.1.4. When MMS comes to 2.x, then I will upgrade.

    I'm not sure about AT&T but the MMS service is simply added on to the sim card like GPRS or video (with a tick in a box) ... reason I know this that I work for Vodafone, my contract however is with O2 here in the UK... I'll be kicking *** if I find out MMS was never enabled on mine.... why not tell them you need to use MMS on another phone and just get it enabled that way?

    Every new sim card sold by Vodafone comes with ability to add

    voicemail.
    VF e-mail
    video conferencing
    MMS
    SMS
    GPRS

    So there is really no excuse... you will however need to find out the mms settings for your telecom however e.g

    Vodafone MMS settings

    Access Point Name: wap.vodafone.co.uk
    Username: wap
    Password: wap
    Authentication: Normal
    Data bearer: GPRS
    Gateway IP (proxy) address: 212.183.137.012
    Session mode: Permanent
    MMS Message (Relay) Server URL: http://mms.vodafone.co.uk/servlets/mms/

    OR

    o2 MMS settings

    The o2 MMS settings can be sent direct to your mobile. Go to O2 Mobile Phone Settings. Alternatively, the settings are:

    Access point name: wap.o2.co.uk (contract customers) or payandgo.o2.co.uk (pay-as-you-go customers)
    Username: o2wap (contract customers) or payandgo (pay-as-you-go customers)
    Password: password
    Authentication: Normal
    Data bearer: GPRS
    Gateway IP (proxy) address: 193.113.200.195
    Session mode: Permanent
    Port number: 8080 or 9201
    URL address: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002


    OR just check here for the uk

    Do some research. It does work and WILL work. Yes it takes some work on your part to get it going, you also will need to get a AT&T employee that is able to tie their own shoes as well as do their own job!

    It's not as simple to get AT&T to put the MMS plan on the iPhone as people are pointing out. You will have to tell AT&T that you have another phone (not the iPhone), provide them with an IMEI of another AT&T phone, and get a plan that will allow for MMS. It won't cost any extra, I believe, since you are just switching out the iPhone's SMS/data plan for a non-iPhone SMS/data plan. Since it's not an iPhone plan, you will lose the ability to receive visual voicemail. This workaround works, but it is far from acceptable. I ended up giving up since I don't send or receive many MMS messages, and I would rather have visual voicemail! Apple and AT&T need to open their eyes and just permit MMS on this phone, since people will use up more SMS/MMS messages and provide AT&T with additional profits! I believe that Apple is withholding this so that they can present it later on, and it's truly annoying! You can go here (SwirlyMMS's site to get answers): SwirlySpace.com • Index page .

    It is not a plan.. its a fricking service.

    free weekends is a plan... stop the clock is a plan
    GPRS is a sim service
    MMS is a sim service
    voicemail is a fricking service!

    visual voicemail otoh may be part of your plan but if you share 2 phones with one sim card (my xdaII and iphone) there should be no reason why they cant just add on the bloody service.

    If that's the way they want to play it I'll unlock mine just to put a competitors PAYT MMS enabled sim in just for mms

    Edit:
    Just read the edit .... so they actively de-activeate it .... I'm so suddenly beginning to hate apple/ATT .... I'll need to dig around to find out if it's the same with O2/ other carriers but that is just total ******** - I wonder what their motive is? I can send a picture in an e-mail for free on wifi... or I can get charged 36p a txt on mms ... go figure?

    I am still amazed that this issue still hasn't been dealt with by Apple. The 2 features of Video recording and MMS are 2 basic functionalities of most phones in todays market. Yet the appointed GOD of phones cant do either.

    I hope someone helps us fully understand what to expect with AT&T and how to make 3G iphones work if we even can. People are saying it will and it wont, so I'm not sure.

    I just posted here:
    SwirlySpace.com • View topic - SwirlyMMS and firmware 2.x...

    Here are the two threads to keep watching.

    This sounded like a good work around until I read the part about losing visual voice mail. (lame)
    If that's the case, hopefully the other visual voice mail options will have a better iphone app in the near future. I used to use youmail with my treo until I got my iphone. I like the custom greetings based on caller ID etc. I might switch back if they released an actual iphone app. I guess the web version isnt too bad, they formated it pretty well for iphone and you can just create a home screen shortcut.

    I don't know about sending, but you can receive video. My GF sent me a video she took on her LG Voyager and I got it on my phone. I'm pretty sure you can send though. I tried sending one on my phone but I couldn't remember where IVR stored videos so I gave up. SwirlyMMS, FileBrowser, and Agile Messenger are the last three apps I need ported to 2.x and I'll be happy
