To prevent MMS from working properly on iPhones AT&T has added "Opt Out MMS codes" to iPhone accounts preventing MMS. Once the codes are taken off accounts MMS will work fine on the iPhone with 3.0 firmware at no additional cost -- it is included with the standard $20 SMS/data plan required for iPhones already. The catch is AT&T has to removed these Op Out MMS codes from every iPhone account manually. Hah.
    20 dollar sms/data plan required? Im a bit confused on that statement. As it stands i am paying 30 dollars for unlimited data, but I certainly don't have unlimited SMS. That for me is an additional 30 dollars...

    So Im a bit curious to see how this pricing is going to pan out...

    Hell, with the new push features, I might just convice everyone to buy Beejive and I.M. all my friends from here on out...

    I'm also having the problem of updating the ipcc file using the Shift + Check for update. It only lets me see the ipsw files. How do I get it to see the ipcc file so I can update it?

    The new 8.2, I had trouble with the previous itunes version too when I had the 3.0 beta 5. I had to SSH the carrier bundles manually in beta 5, but I can't jailbreak this new gm 3.0 yet right?

    kinda curious about something...as I've previously stated, I currently have a RZR v9 contract with AT&T but use my sim in a 1st gen iphone and have SwirlyMMS working fine and has been for months...I recently did the upgrade and preordered my 3GS through the AT&T site, my SwirlyMMS still currently works now and they show on the order that they'll be sending me a new sim along with my 3GS...if I was to not use the new sim they send, wait for a jailbreak/activate, could I slip in my original sim Im currently using and have AT&T MMS functionality?

    No it won't be activated with your current sim. It will prolly say connect to iTunes. Once the jailbreak is released you'll be able to activate it that way.

    thats what i mean, i can continue to use my current sim in my current 1st gen iphone and then when the jailbreak/activation is released for my 3gs, jailbreak and activate the 3gs and use the sim im using now and my AT&T MMS will work?

    Wow I hate this Apple/AT&T working together so much.

    LAST YEAR there was an issue with who get get an iPhone 3G and AT&T told us that apple did this, but apple said it was AT&T's fault and we had to talk to too many AT&T and Apple representatives.

    And now it's the same old thing. AT&T are blaming apple, and apple is blaming AT&T and it never ends.

    Why does apple claim they have a good relationship with AT&T and that they want to continue to work with them which means possibly coming up with a new contract and staying with apple instead of going to other carriers. It doesn't seem like they get along.

    Default wtf?
    Charging extra fees for tethering is ridiculous no matter what price you put on it. Tethering itself shouldn't cost money since its a feature natively supported by 3.0 software and most laptops/desktop computers, and only involves connecting iPhone via USB cable to a PC; "tethering" should come under the same unlimited data plan that AT&T already sticks its users with. It's like saying "well sure, you HAVE to pay $XX/month for UNLIMITED* data. *but we won't actually let you use it any way you want, and we're work our hardest to make sure that you donot really use it at all, if possible."

    Depending on who you get at Tmobile (I work in the unsupported department... we'll tell you that you need to have the smart phone internet package for $24.99 because our towers now go off the IMEI number of the phone and if it is not a tmo imei well it won't work. this is why you get the "upgrade message" when you use the $9.99 unlimited web2go or the $5.99 tzone package with an iphone or any non-tmo phone.

    BB plans are specifically designed for the blackberrys to go through RIM's network.

    T-Mobile is the ONLY company that DOES NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR TETHERING.

    And for those of you wondering about the 3G... I'm sure you're all aware of this... T-Mobile uses AWS 1700Mhz/2100Mhz for their 3.5G network. for the phone does not haev AWS or the 1700Mhz freq it WILL NOT WORK on 3G

    Not sure if was in this thread but someone stated that back to my mac now worked for them with tethering. I had the same success. I was never able to log in remotely into my Time Capsule, but am able to easily with tethering. Strange.
