tha reason why apple/at&t as well as other carriers are shying away from MMS is because its Costing them more money to run those MMS servers as more subcribers begin to use MMS over the last 4-5 years. Now its at a point where they will either decide to Upsell their " Media Packages " or just forget it because its not worth it.
Hence Sprint cancelling its MMS service at the beginning of 2009.
Futhermore, most phones that are on the market right now all come with Data Plans/Email. It does suck that you cant send directly to a phone number any more, but it's really not that big of deal to be honest.
Time to let go of this old technology. Look for Text Messaging to be the next to go within about 4-5 years. As more companies/employers begin to utilize it, you will see rates go up. The funny **** about Text Messgaing is tha fact that it is actually emailing all along. People just dont realize it.

The way i see it is no one phone has it all, but the iPhone has more features than most other phones and are missing a couple of features that others do. The only way to have it all is more than one phone and that is a hassle. I like my iPhone more than the other phones i have had. If you are not happy with the iphone then sell it and buy another phone and quit whining.If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

I understand that texting iand MMS is a form of email.
What I don't understand is why this is considered old technology.
When it comes to text and MMS similar a link is drwan to push to talk. Instant access/connect to another.
I have experienced serious time delays in receiving emails. I don't recall hang times in receiving text pages or MMS.
Maybe what the future holds will be a better messaging services.

I just dont understand why they dont remove the Text Messaging servers and just combine it with the MMS server.. People would then not be limited to 140 or 160 characters per message (depending on their carriers).
Or simply remove messaging all together and just add E-Mail services between phones, so you can add pictures and text just like you do in emails. That would simplify a lot..

once again, e-mail is NOT a replacement for txt/mms and never will be. that's like saying AIM, Yahoo, and MSN are outdated and should go the wayside in favor of e-mail.
txt is IM for cell phones.. long e-mail messages are not something that are easily accessible via phones, smtp is slower than txt, and i sure as hell don't want my e-mail inbox full of one-liner IM messages like 'ok' 'ya' 'lol', all mixed in with my actual email. people who support this, what are you thinking?

Come to think of it though, most of them/my friends had/have smartphones or iPhones so we kinda all skipped MMS/SMS...
Also, AIM/MSN are outdated. You're starting to see more integration between e-mail and chat (yahoo/msn both have their live/chat counterparts and google chat is integrated into gmail). It won't happen anytime soon, but we're moving away from texts in phones when the phones can just IM.
And the other reason I want txt/mms to die. Overpriced texting plans for something that costs them nothing. Why the hell should I pay more than I already do to do something I can do for free through AIM/email. Unless you guys have some super-secret free MMS/Text plan...

If there is a con to my engineering college that I will give you, it's not the women but the location. Ohio tends to get cold as hell in Winter so people cover themselves pretty good

the sig was meant that the adrenaline rush of draggin one's knee through twistys is longer lasting than a straight run for a 1/4 mile. And for the record a "tweaked yet street" gixxer 1k only does the 1/4 in mid 9's.

Actually, the phone can send pix msgs. use the App called quip. Someone who works with my wife told her about it. I checked it out and i must say all in all its not that bad. I mean it doenst work like traditional MMS. one has to have web access, but when you click on the link it takes you right to the pic you sent tried it with both 3G and 2G. works both ways. It is also just a text msg, so high MMS fees would essentially be a thing of the past. I like it and recommend it, not like I am anyone though)
