how do you send MMS with 3.0? I've got the 3.0 GM installed, and in the messaging there's no way to tack on a picture? or am i missing something?

Hey my brother has a iphone 2g unlocked with tmobile. will he be able to upgrade to the official 3.0 and keep the unlock.

I installed the 3.0 version on my iPhone 2G which runs on Etisalat in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Although, my carrier is supported and network is showing as connected (and receiving calls), i am unable to activate the phone i.e my iPhone is on the "Connect to iTunes" screen.
Anyone have any suggestion as to how i can activate my 2G iPhone on the 3.0 firmware?
Thank you all for your time and help in advance.

Unless your phone is on an official network you can't activate the 2G without pwnage - and as this is not available for FW3.0 it can not be activated.
If the phone is locked to Etisalat and that's who's SIM you are using then it should activate, if it doesn't I suggest you contact them and ask why.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Thank you for the prompt reply.
I'm using an old 2G AT&T iPhone that i unlocked to use with Etisalat here in Dubai. Surprisingly, the network is connected which i'm assuming means that there was no change to the baseband. However, without being able to officially activate it, i'm now stuck on the "Connect to iTunes" screen.
Although Etisalat is officially supported, i haven't actually bought this phone from them which is probably why i am getting this error. I guess i'll just have to wait for Quickpwn to support the 3.0 GM.
Thanks again for your help.

how do you actually know if it is supported? one guy says gmail is , the other says no.
how do we actually tell if it is working?
i'm not saying you know nothing reeko, just where are you getting your info so i can have a look and work it out for myself and my account settings etc.
whats this about o2 also?
i'm on o2 in the uk on a proper iphone contract and alls fine here on 3.0.
what is the problem you are talking about?

mmm i have the 3.0 os non dev account wonder if i should update or not xD

As a registered developer I decided that I would take a shot at the GM Build...as it turns out I mantained access to my filesystem...think back to how we used to have to jailbreak from 1.1.2...
Though I di have fully access and control of the entire filesysystem, it was not a true jailbreak...yet.

ok was going to make a thread on this but i didnt know where to post it maybe a mod can move it
these are just guesses or speculations: how long do u think it will take the dev-team to yellowsn0w the 4.26.08 baseband in 3.0 and in the meantime anyone buy a piggyback sim from unlockiphone30.net? does it work i emailed them and they claim it works with 3.0 beta 1-5 which is baseband 4.20.01-4.26.08

I said it before in another post, they re-negged on the mms with the beta 5 release because they just couldn't get it right in time.

Question: As stated above I have 3.0 (7A341) modem fw (04.26.08), no yellowsn0w needed, thanks to confucious. On the 17th June, I was going to to do the following:
Plug iphone in
Using latest version of iTunes (which is already installed)
Shift/restore back to 2.1.1 or do I just click resto
Once restored, upgrade to 3.0
I assume even with the restore the fw version woud change but the BB would remain as 04.26.08, I am taking it as this would not cause me a problem as I do not use yellowsn0w?

no it should not be a problem to you newyork900.
i have a problem myself i have update to 3.0 my iPhone was not locked but when it is recognized in itunes it says the sim card is not supported, and i cant exactly ring up apple and say 'hey i upgraded early can you help me'. i have rang my carrier which is Optus in Australia and they said it is most likely an issue with Apples hardware blah blah.

REGARDING PUSH EMAIL AND THE IPHONE
Yahoo! Mail - Yes
Gmail - No (it's like they have their own phone which can do push, but that'd be crazy. They would call it something stupid like G1 because any more letter/numbers and people wouldn't remember)
Exchange Accounts - Yes
NOTE: The Pre (and Blackberries) CAN do Gmail push because when you add a mail account on those phones, you're giving their mail servers the info. These mail servers keep your mail accounts updated constantly and push any emails your way the second they receive something, regardless of who the email provider is.

i have a problem...Im running 3.0 on 3G phone but cant see MMS or tethering options.
Is this means i need to install At&t ipcc bundle in order to see this features???

I've searched this thread, but too many pages...cant seem to find an answer.
I have a first gen iPhone, running the latest (non-beta) firmware, AT&T, and jailbroken. I have iTunes 8.2 and 3.0 downloaded onto my computer.
I'm trying to figure out if I intall the GM 3.0 onto my iPhone.....will I have full use of it afterwards? Access to my homepage..ect. I've read hear that some 1st gen users can only access the 'Emergency Call Screen'. or is that only for T-Moble users? BTW I do not have a Dev account
