You really think apple cares that much about their customers?
They want you money. And that's that. To them, your nothing but a number with money.
Except for the pesky block on MMS by AT&T on iPhone contracts which is completely out of Apple's hands.
No, Apple told AT&T to block MMS's in order to discourage users to jailbreak.
John: Hey bob, I want MMS.. So i need to Jailbreak.
Bob: Don't do that John! Mr Jobs won't like you if you do that sin. Plus, AT&T blocks your MMS's anyhow!
John: Ahh Rats. Well I guess I'll have to stick to being a boring loser without MMS and miss out on all those sweet as nude photos of my girlfriend.myRepoSpace.com - Easily create your own Cydia Repo.

Apple never bothered with MMS because MMS is nothing more than glorified e-mail in their eyes and since they have the real thing well who needs it, but they did not tell AT&T to block MMS.
I for one could care less about MMS and I've expressed this opinion here many times. However, I will gladly slowly and painfully torture whoever is responsible for viewmymessage.com. It's one thing to disable a service in a phone and it's another to provide the WORST POSSIBLE WORKAROUND IN THE HISTORY OF ANYTHING.

And actually I have no problem with viewmymessage.com. Just open MMS Buddy and load my images right in there and it's a lot like the MMS app Apple should have given us. Well, 1/2 of it anyway. Multimedia Messages lets me send pics as MMS, but not from my number. I pretty much have MMS on my phone, just not as nice as it could be and a little less convenient.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

It's obviously not ATT's fault.

I'm on Google's side for this one. The Developer had no right using Google's service, and charging other people to use it. Sure he put the time and effort into developing the application, but c'mon.
Google had every right to close it, whether it caused them technical OR financial problems. The hostile attitude of "Innerfence" is really off-putting. Their press releases seemed irritated at Google for shutting them down because "they hadn't done anything wrong, or violated Google's TOC".
Shut up.... You knew it was sketchy when you started.

"That should mean if your app is in TOP 10, youíre making big bucks."
This line is BS there is a difference from an app that say lets you play videos from your own storage than an app that is constantly costing google money. I am sure the load was extremely high even for google standpoints.
Google has every right to stop this considering you paid what $1 for the app which in turn cost google $2-$100+ per user every day.

geez google, just think of it as an advertisement/promotion, do i have to tell you everything?
03-16-2009, 07:53 AM #31
wow.... i'm sure AT&T was leaning on them pretty hard. Its cutting out a line of service. i pay 20 a month fo unlimited texts.lol

I was considering buying this app the other day, but decided to go with TextFree because I could send and receive text messages on my iTouch. Man am I glad I didn't go with Infinite SMS instead."In computer networking, a Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to most network adapters or network interface cards (NICs) by the manufacturer for identification, and used in the Media Access Control protocol sub-layer."

I loved that app...it really sucks that google has to be such a baby about it. They make a killing and cant afford to allow for free texting....WHATEVER! I am done with GOOGLE! They done pissed me off for the very last time!
03-16-2009, 06:55 PM #34
Pretty sure Google has no reason not to shut it down.
03-16-2009, 09:54 PM #35Let's not forget.
Let's not forget who approved the app in the first place. (If it hasn't been mentioned already)
03-17-2009, 07:39 AM #36
It's an experimental service and was never meant for production use. Sure it might go production eventually but they are not set up for that yet I would imagine. They are interested in developing some data on these apps for future use but they don't need the entire world slamming them to get it done.
And has been pointed out building your business model off being a parasite on someone else's business isn't very smart nor is it nice.
03-17-2009, 09:28 AM #37
Did infinite claim they were providing the service?
Did they state that Google were providing a beta service?
I don't know how this was marketed.
I believe it was just marketed as a front end for Gtalk - but as I don't live in the USA I never saw the app.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Now, I do admit that Apple and AT&T ARE in cahoots with each other, but it is AT&T who will be paying the bills when all that picture data starts flowing through their networks.8Gig > 1.0 FW (dead spot on screen)
8Gig > 1.0.2 FW (broken vibrate after a while)
8Gig > 1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2(Jonny5 Still alive)

I guarantee you this has more to do with iphone 3 and its "New Features" list than anything. Think about it.... the new phone comes out with "Cheap" SMS/Text plans and everyone gets off their nuts about not having it in the first 2 phones. If they let google keep doin the whole free thing what will apple have to brag about? Copy paste? Crippled bluetooth? Um... a new 32gb one? Itll support codecs? Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm yeah ya see where im going here..... I guarantee picture messaging will be the highlight of the new iphone and people will run across fire/broken glass/lava to get one... Its apples way of life... give a little but make it pretty... they will come.
Oh and i love my iphone. Because of the apps and... well the thing is damn pretty alright. Yeah i said it.... smartasses...Go Ahead. Hit the Thank button... it wont bite.
Tap Tap Revenge is Gay... That is fact.
